Santa Claus and the Grinch were on hand to celebrate the ribbon cutting of the new Michael’s store in Milford

After months of renovation, Michael’s officially opened their doors with a ribbon cutting sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Milford on Saturday. Early customers were provided refreshments after Santa and the Grinch assisted store employees with the ribbon cutting.

“We are very excited to have Michael’s in Milford,” Jo Schmeiser, Executive Director of the chamber said. “We welcome out to Milford and hope you will have great success in our town.”

Mayor Archie Campbell along with his wife, Ronnie, were also on hand for the ribbon cutting.

“The city welcomes you,” Mayor Campbell said. “This is a much needed addition to our town, and we are thrilled that you chose Milford to open a new location. We are looking forward to watching you grow.”

The store offered many specials to celebrate the ribbon cutting as well. Customers stood in line waiting for the doors to open Saturday morning.

“I have been waiting for this store to open since they announced it was coming months ago,” Faith Lynch, who was waiting outside said. “This means no more driving to Dover or Rehoboth to get the craft supplies I need. Now, it is less than five minutes from my house.”

Joe, part of the management team at the new Milford Michael’s location, welcomed everyone into the store after the ribbon was cut.

“We are so excited to officially open this new location,” Joe said. “We plan to bring the Michael’s quality and customer service our customers are used to at our other locations. We are looking forward to a long and happy relationship with Milford.”

The new Michael’s store is located in the Milford Plaza Shopping Center at 650 North Dupont Boulevard, Suite B. The store is open from 9 AM until 10 PM Monday through Saturday and 9 Am until 9 PM on Sunday.
