Michaels moves into former A.C. Moore space at Tanglewood Mall

Michaels plans to open a store at Tanglewood Mall, its second location in Roanoke.

John Abernathy, president of Blackwater Resources, which owns Tanglewood Mall, said the craft retailer will move into the space vacated by A.C. Moore.

A.C. Moore announced in November that it would close all of its craft stores.  The company said at the time that Michaels was expected to take over 40 of the more than 145 shuttered locations.
