A New Jersey based retailer is throwing itself on the pile of chain stores going out of business.

Nicole Crafts, the parent company of A.C. Moore says it will close all of the arts and craft stores. According to ProvidenceJournal.com, the company is closing all of the stores “as part of a broader strategic plan.”

There is an A.C. Moore store in the English Creek Shopping Center.

According to BizJournal.com, 40 of the current A.C.Moore stores will have their leases obtained by Michael's stores - but those locations have yet to be made known.
