Jo-Ann Stores celebrates 66th anniversary
August 5, 2009,
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.
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.
