I had heard this rumored a few months ago, but last night, I saw for myself. We went over to The Shoppes At River Crossing, and saw that there will be a Joann Fabrics and Crafts Store coming in July! All I can say is IT'S ABOUT TIME. We have a Michael's, which is fine, even though it's kinda in the ghetto. But I have heard Joann is more like Hobby Lobby, and I prefer that. I still don't know why Warner Robins got the Hobby Lobby. :( Anyway, so, yay! I will have a Joann within 10 minutes of my house! That's closer than Michael's, and that's really exciting!
Got these pics with my iPhone last night as we drove by.
I was so excited, I let out a little yelp of glee and then proceeded to make up and sing a song to the new Joann building to the tune of Dolly Parton's "Jolene":
"Joann, Joann, Joann, Joaaaaaaannnn,
I'm gonna buy some scrapbook stuff from you
Joann, Joann, Joann, Joaaaaaaaannnn,
And Brian wants to take a sewing class or two"
They must have known I was coming and put out those protective orange cones.
They open Friday, July 16th! Yay!
