Wenatchee Craft Warehouse Store to Close


Another retail store is going out of business in the Wenatchee Valley. Craft Warehouse announces the closure of the store at the Valley North Center. 31 employees will be let go and the store is slated to begin liquidating its inventory at 9 am Friday. Store officials say the company’s eight remaining stores in the Northwest will remain open.

The Wenatchee store changed names after Michaels closed several years ago.

Store officials said in a news release, “Dear Friends and Fellow Creatives, we’re sad to announce the closing of our store in Wenatchee. We will miss you all and are sad to have been forced to make this decision. As a Northwest family-owned business it has been a pleasure to serve you and your creative pursuits.”

Thank you for your past business and support,”
