Is that everything in the scrapbooking isle. Right now, their clearance isnt really a bargin...example $7 is now $4.50 I dont think that's a bargain..Maybe next week it'll be different.

My Mike's is a disaster! They took everything off the shelves and have boxes blocking all the aisles...I couldn't even look for anything that might be 70% off! The manager told me they are re-doing the whole department and ordering all new stuff...seems AC Moore is on that bandwagon too, I just saw they are carrying Heidi Grace stuff...

Default Michaels sales

I know our Michaels is having a clearance to but thats because they are opening up an Archivers Store. Archivers is going to be huge its forcing all of the scrapbook stores in the area to close.

That's strange! I went there this morning and figured I was going to get some great deals..Nothing is right..just junk, picked over stuff. If they wanted to get rid of stuff, they should really mark it down, ya know what I'm saying.

OK, just got home from my Mike's and apparently they didn't get the memo that states clearance means drop the prices!! They have their big clearance sign up and lots of bins with junk in them, but the prices sure wasn't a bargain. There were two employees working on the Martha Stewart isle, putting up signage, racks etc.

Same here, a big fat nothing. And some of the Martha Stewart stuff was up and I won't be purchasing any of this either. The 40% off coupon doesn't apply and it is overpriced and very stuffy looking, not my style at all.

I know what you mean. Everyone seems to have the same complaint. They are making this Martha Stewart such a Big Issue. They didnt have any of her stuff up yet..But do they have to reorganize the whole store because she is coming in. Thats aggravating because they have carts everywhere and boxes. It's hard to check out what they do have..Not really anything on sale in this weeks ad either.

I feel like I waste my gas when I travel to Joanns here in OKlahoma. It's horrible, its not like it used to be..I used to love going there, because they did have alot of good clearance as such..anyways, its just too darn far for me to go now..thats a good thing maybe.

I went today and they said they had all ready sold everything. It was a mess and didn't have anything to buy. I was very disappointed.

I went on Saturday and I was disappointed with the sale stuff. Lots of stickers and some stamps that had like 2.00 off.. no big sale. I did see lot of new cuttlebug stuff though. Bought the new paisley and got some new designer paper that matches chipboard that I ordered. Expensive though. 24.99 Canadian for the paper. Used the 40% off coupon though.

I hit my Michael's at 9:30 Sunday morning thinking there would probably be a line for the 10 a.m. opening..... WRONG!!! Apparently everyone else in town was smarter than me. No one else in line and when I got inside I realized why. 1, count it, 1 tiny, tacky bin of clearance stickers, one dented scrapbook and about 5 clearance 12 x 12 papers, all still at the regular clearance price. NOTHING was 70% off! When I complained to the manager, he said he had no idea why that clearance ad was in their weekly flyer. Oh, and he pointed out that it says "up to 70% off," the great LOOPHOLE! I felt so stupid!

I saw the "up to 70%" off too but being that so much has been on clearance for so long (and not really cheap, either), I thought for sure this was going to be the jackpot for getting stuff really cheap. Well, all the new stuff is up but no price slash and the scrapbooking stuff was just an empty bin with opened packages of stickers. I still have more there than I used to but this sale was disappointing. Too bad this is the only store around.

Personally, I thought it was very close to false advertising. I went to two Michael stores Sunday and there was nothing at either one.

I went to my Mike's today and found a bunch of stuff I wasn't at all interested in marked down by maybe 50% at the most. Nothing even close to 70% - and I had to walk all around the store looking for it. The memory book aisles are about 50% restocked with some nice K and Company stuff - but I can't remember if it was there before and I just never noticed. They were all sorts of busy setting up the Martha stuff though - 5 people working on it! I hoped they would put out some product, but just doing the shelvings and display. I did take a look at the flyer that put in the bag and the Martha stuff didnt' look that interesting. hmmmmmm.

I went to the Michael's here this afternoon and was truly disappointed in what they had in the clearance bins...definitely not 70% off anything and mostly real, real, outdated pads and papers and stickers. They'd moved stuff all around in the card, scrapbook area and had maybe one or two empty sides of aisles for the Martha stuff. I'll be eager to see how it all turns out.

I was at our Michael's on Saturday and they had some of the new Martha Stewart stuff out. It is really expensive! And not all that great from what I could see. And as for the clearance....maybe I should say what clearance! What a disappointment!!!

I'm glad I don't feel like the lone ranger....such a large notation of clearance items in the AD only to find nothing available.

I agree- what clearance? They had alot of the new martha Stewart stuff at my Micahaels' but it is very expensive AND you CANNOT use thier coupons for any of her stuff. I told the clerk, "you are going to have alot of angry customers" and she said she was aware and not happy either.

I was in two Michaels stores over the past couple of days. Not much in the clearance sections. I don't know whether there wasn't much there to begin with -- or it's been picked over. Neither store had the MS stuff on the shelves yet, but I did see some signs.
