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're committed to giving back to the communities that support us. That's why we partnered with Starlight Children's Foundation® and established Michaels Cares, a charity that serves our Team Members.
  • 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!
