Hobbycraft Opens Blackpool Store

The new store in Blackpool officially opened its doors on Tuesday (June 4) with the grand opening celebrations taking place this Saturday (June 8).

Hobbycraft, the UK’s largest arts and crafts retailer, opened its brand-new store in Blackpool on Tuesday 4 June, based at Blackpool Retail Park. To celebrate, Hobbycraft will be hosting a grand opening event on Saturday 8 June, during which customers will be able to enjoy a selection of product offers, a golden ticket giveaway, live craft demonstrations, a free Snazaroo face painting stand and free goody bags for the first 100 customers.

Fiona Grayson, store manager and knitting expert said: “We are really looking forward to opening the doors to our Blackpool store and sharing our passion for arts and crafts with the local community. Over the last few years, we have seen more people than ever take up crafting and we want to encourage locals to come down to the new store and share their crafting experience. We look forward to providing Blackpool customers with the ultimate retail experience, combined with fantastic crafting products at great prices.”

The new store will provide customers with a dedicated sewing area, offering a wide range of patterns, fabrics, and trimmings, plus an extended range of sewing machines that customers can test-drive before purchasing, as well as a dedicated space which introduces customers to the world of digital crafting.

Hobbycraft Blackpool has created nine new jobs in the local community, who will form a dedicated team on hand to help customers with craft advice and a friendly service seven days a week.
