Best Jo-Ann Black Friday Deals from 2012

Jo-Ann will definitely be on every craft-lover’s Black Friday list of stores to hit up. In 2012, The Hudson, Ohio based fabric and crafts store carried loads of spectacular items for spreading holiday cheer around the home and garden.

Whether customers were looking for some pre-lit greenery or a variety of yarns to knit some handmade holiday gifts, Jo-Ann’s 2012 ad scan revealed some hot deals their customers were bound to enjoy. Of course, the sale items didn’t just prep customers for holiday crafting. Some items provided them crafting opportunities for many days to come.

Jo-Ann generously announced that they were giving their customers 9 days worth of sales in 2012. They warmed up their customers with 2 days of Black Friday doorbusters, but they didn’t stop there! They extended sales from Black Friday until December 1st in addition to offering special sales specifically for the Nov. 29th – Dec. 1st weekend.

As if these deals weren’t enough, Jo-Ann offered to match lower prices from other competitors’ stores. Customers could speak with managers about matching lower prices so long as customers: 1.) Brought in physical proof that Jo-Ann’s products were being sold elsewhere at lower prices, and 2.) The deals were advertised within a week of their shopping date. Exclusions applied to all price-matched products, so be sure to read the fine print in this year’s ad as well!
