The company, team members and generous customers provided more than $183,000 to the AHA through the coin box donations and various campaigns in 2010. Finally, these new stores will participate in merchandise donation programs to benefit national non-profit partners including Goodwill Industries International, Inc. For additional information, visit

    I wish they would build a Jo-Anns in Elizabethtown, KY. With all the new changes in the area brought in by the military there are a lot of new stores coming in and a lot of store frontage for sale or lease. There are TONS of us military wives who do crafts as small businesses from our homes to help supliment our spouses incomes. All we have are two Walmarts who keep trying to do away with their small already fabric sections and an antiquated Hancocks which hasnt been updated in over 10 yrs and might have 2000sq foot max of store space!!!

    Need a Joann here in beautiful Inverness, Florida. We have no craft
    supply stores in a decent driving distance and there are lots of retirees
    here that love their crafts.

    They are building a new mall areA. We have nothing in that area
    We have to drive 25 miles to cool springs or Rivergate area we have one north south and east but nothing nothing on the west side! Please consider

    We are badly in need of a JoAnn’s Fabric store on the Mississippi Gulf coast, a lot of building going on here. I keep hopeing!!!

    I wish they would open a store in the Cedar Hill/Duncanville Texas area. You can’t just run 40 minutes away to get some thread or accessories or a yard of fabric for a project. Even when you’re buying for a complete project, the trip is long. I used to buy a lot more fabric and needlecraft supplies when there was a store nearby. The extra cost of going to Hobby Lobby is offset by the gas it takes to go to Arlington.
