Elyria Jo-Ann Fabric moving to new location

ELYRIA — Jo-Ann Fabric is moving from the Midway Crossing Plaza to a location near the Giant Eagle on West River Road.

The plan is to open March 7. The new store will serve as a one-stop creative destination for sewing and crafting enthusiasts in the community, said company spokesman Joe Adams.

The store will carry a large assortment of crafting, floral, seasonal accessories, finished home-decor items and an expansive selection of fabrics for apparel, crafting and home decorating. Additionally, creative classes designed to teach sewing and crafting techniques at all skill levels will be offered.

A job fair will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 14 and 15 to support the store opening. Prospective employees should come to the old store at 1589 West River Road N. during that time.

Grand opening celebrations are scheduled to take place March 20 through 22.
