Michaels discontinuing Glowforge PG materials?

Greetings -

I went to Michaels today to find their PG materials were in the discount isle and the GF display was gone. Bummer. So I’m curious if that’s a corporate wide decision, or just my local store? If anyone knows…

The few materials they had left were atleast 40% off. So I got some thick and light cherry plywood for a great deal. Maybe I’ll get a few sheets of the Oversized acrylic if they mark those down a little more next week.

They did have a few new pallets of Cricut and Silhouette on the floor though, just in time for the PFD. I might have to get one to check it out. You could say I’ve been ‘Cricut curious’ lately. :wink:

My closest Michaels never had any, manager insisted it was online only.

I guess to be expected in our little village of Atlanta.

The Joann across the street carried some, but it was picked over and ridiculously priced.

That’s a shame… they could have given it a bit longer!

They have a big fancy display with a GF at my closest Joann, and nobody has a clue how to use it. I even offered to volunteer time to get it working and teach people, and nobody had a clue about how to access it. As you probably know, you need a GF account to access any machine. The folks at the store just said “plug it in”.

That seems so shortsighted of them, very annoying/sad.

I mean what did they think would happen its ridiculously over priced even prior to the pandemic raising prices. Wish it were near me I would buy it all…

I did visit a Michaels in Miami and found Glowforge PG material heavily discounted.
