Pat Catan's closing all stores

Posted: Updated:

Less than three years after being sold to the owner of Michael's craft stores, Pat Catan's will be closing its 35 stores in four states, including four stores in the Valley.

“After a comprehensive review, we have made the difficult decision to close the Pat Catan’s retail stores,” according to a statement from a spokesperson for the Michael's Companies.

Pat Catan's operates stores in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and West Virginia.

Here in the Valley, the retailer has locations in Austintown, Boardman, Warren, and Hermitage.

In February 2016, when Michael's purchased rival Pat Catan's, the new owners said they intended to keep the stores open.

Michaels has stores in Niles and Boardman.

Michaels, which has more than 1,100 stores in 49 states and Canada, including locations in Niles and Boardman, said it intends to rebrand and reopen as many as a 12 as new Michaels locations later this year. The company statement does not say which locations will be rebranded.

The statement says Michaels will continue to keep a Support Center in Strongsville to support the Darice wholesale business.

“We are committed to providing opportunities for all impacted team members and are working closely with our staff and the local communities to help manage through this transition,” the statement concludes.

    So-called low-head dams are found all along the Mahoning River.  Some dating back a hundred years, were built to support steel mill operaions and other industries that lined the river bank. Area leaders say now it's time to clean up the river and turn it into an economic development tool.   "Our legacy is in this river, it's why the people came here, it's why industry came here, and for the last 50 years we turned our backs on the river," said James Dignan, Excut...
