Is the Michaels Arts And Crafts store coming to Lufkin, TX?
When I went to Kingwood and visited my aunt, she always said she was going to Michaels. It was a bit strange because my cousin, Micheal, didn’t have his own house and lived with it since he was 12.
In reality, she was going to a Michaels Arts and Crafts store. Personally, I’ve never been inside a Michaels.
This was before Lufkin had a Hobby Lobby, and I had no idea what an arts and crafts store was. Ever since Hobby Lobby opened a store in Lufkin, I’ve been there every once in a while and learned about the appeal of this type of store.
Is the Michaels Arts And Crafts store moving to Lufkin’s former Best Buy?
There has been a lot of speculation about who will move into Best Buy’s former location. Everything from a Bass Pro Shop to a Radio Shack has been suggested.

Although I think the guy who said Radio Shack was just kidding. The old Best Buy building is getting some love right now with a new paint job and a few other upgrades, so something is happening.
The rumor that carries the most weight with me is Michaels. I think a Michaels would do well here at Lufkin. They have 8 locations in Houston alone, not including all of the surrounding locations in Katy, Spring, Humble, and Webster.

Additionally, Michaels has a habit of entering existing buildings and making them his own. I’m sure they’ve used an old Best Buy building or two in the past to create a new store.
That being said, I took the time to check out Michaels’ Facebook page and website. There’s not a shred of evidence that they’ll be here or anywhere near here anytime soon.
We can only wait and see what happens.
