The Michaels Companies, Inc., like all companies, is concerned with the unprecedented global challenges that we are facing due to coronavirus (COVID-19). Please be assured that during this time of uncertainty, the health and safety of our Team Members and customers is our highest priority.

In addition to monitoring guidance from local, national and global health organizations, we are taking precautionary measures to ensure that our corporate office, stores, distribution centers and other facilities minimize risks.

Stores & Non-Store Facilities: 

We are increasing the cleaning of cashier and framing counters, store classrooms, shopping cart handles, door handles, bathrooms, breakrooms and other high-traffic and high-touch areas. We have also developed dedicated communication channels to share information and preventative guidelines with our Team Members.


We have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel large gatherings including the following in-store events:  

  • Kids Clubs
  • MAKE breaks
  • Spring MAKE Camp
  • Maker Fests

We will resume large events as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we have added DIY ideas to our Projects Page and will host Facebook LIVE broadcasts for family-fun activities at noon CDT every Wednesday. You can find more information on

Our Team Members:

Until further notice, Michaels Team Members at the corporate office have the option to work from home.

We have also restricted company travel unless it is for essential business purposes.

The Michaels leadership team will continue to monitor guidance from federal, state and provincial governments and we will update our business practices and policies accordingly.

Thank you for being a Michaels customer. We wish you and your loved ones good health.

- Mark Cosby, CEO
