We’re proud to say that our values aren’t just lip service; we all operate by them each day.

To establish these values, we put together a team of people from all over the company, and this is what they come up with. We think it's pretty great.

  • Make People Happy - We're dedicated to making Michaels a fun and supportive place to work, as well as a great place to shop.
  • Keep It Simple - It sounds easy, but sometimes simple is hard! Nevertheless, most things work best if they aren't complicated.
  • Innovate & Learn - The world moves quickly, and we aren't looking just to keep up. We strive to think bigger, have the best ideas, move faster and work smarter.
  • Give Back - We are committed to giving back to the communities that support us. That’s why we have partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada as our exclusive charity partners. Our goal is to nourish critical youth development and provide opportunities for Club members to confidently explore and discover their creative voices to positively and significantly impact their lives.
  • Spend Smart - We try to be frugal and spend our money in the best possible ways so we can invest in what truly matters.
  • Do The Right Thing - At Michaels, integrity is of the utmost importance. We try each day to do what's right (not just what's easy) for each other and for our customers.
  • Have Fun - We take our work seriously, but ourselves? Not. At. All. After all, we sell glitter and googly eyes!
