Michael’s Arts & Crafts Downtown Vancouver Store Burrard/Alberni

By Vancity Buzz Staff | 11:15 am PST, Wed August 10, 2011 | Speak Up

Last week @DowntownVan tweeted that a Michaels Arts & Crafts is opening a store at Burrard/Alberni. Apparently it will be located on the second floor above existing retail. When I read that tweet my first thought was Burrard and Alberni? Our so called high end street will be home to a Michael’s? Something doesn’t add up. That is the same street that houses Hermes, Tiffany, Brooks Brothers, Agent Provocateaur, Burberry and now Michael’s.

Despite the perplexing location arts and crafts lovers will rejoice as they no longer have to leave downtown to get their craft on. More  on this as it develops…
