www.ParamusPost.com visited the store on Preview Night and was amazed to see the long line of people waiting outside in the summer heat for the store to open at 7PM. We entered ahead of schedule and were greeted with a big smile by a lady whose name tag read JoAnne. No my reader, Joanne Hess is the District Manager, not the Jo-Ann.Long awaited, well received, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, the leading fabric and craft specialty retailer in America, announced an exclusive Preview Night for a new store in Paramus, New Jersey on Wednesday, July 6.
Also greeting the onslaught of patrons were Barry Makransky, Store Manager and Nina Storms, Merchandise Manager. After posing for a group picture, they immediately got to work welcoming the waiting throng and handing out gift bags plus other goodies.
The vast store quickly filled up with eager shoppers taking advantage of the discounted opening offers. Many had visited their Ramsey store and were aware of the many facets of Jo-Ann’s.
Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is located at 30 A & S Drive, Paramus, NJ 07652 just before Paramus Park. It was gratifying to see that there was immediate access into the store parking lot instead of having to go up to the light at The Sports Authority and then wend ones way across a bridge and into the parking area.
