Stopping in to JoAnn’s recently to buy some notions, I asked two employees (separately) if they had heard the news that JoAnn’s was sold to private equity firm Leonard Green last week. See my first story here: JoAnn Fabrics Sold. The first said no — she had just returned from vacation. The second also didn’t know, and didn’t know that the company had been public before the buyout. *Sigh.* I guess as long as the paychecks keep coming, it won’t matter much to them. But I’m still hoping for some improvement to the fabric quality and more emphasis on apparel sewing rather than crafts. What would you like to see at JoAnn’s? I would really love to hear your thoughts — just type a comment below.
