Jo-Ann Stores celebrates 66th anniversary

Hudson, Ohio – Celebrating this year its 66th anniversary as a fabric and craft retailer, Jo-Ann Stores will give 66 of its most loyal customers a $100 gift card to spend at their local store.

"Generations of sewers and crafters have been coming to Jo-Ann for more than six decades, and we think that's a great reason to celebrate," said Travis Smith, coo of the company, which operates more than 750 stores. "

The retailer originally was known as Cleveland Fabric Shop. But as it grew in store count during the 1950s and 1960s, the company’s two founding families renamed it Jo-Ann Fabrics, commemorating the names of their daughters.
