Jo-Ann expands workforce ahead of holidays

In anticipation of increased store traffic this holiday shopping season, Jo-Ann has announced plans to hire more than 3,000 seasonal employees in stores across the country — a 14% increase over its non-seasonal in-store workforce.

“We are fortunate to have the capacity to hire [additional] team members so the Jo-Ann customer continues to see the same exceptional customer service and experience that she has come to expect,” said Tom Williams, SVP, store operations and human resources. “We are proud of the positive impact this job creation will have on the communities we call home.”

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is a leading fabric and craft retailer with more than 800 Jo-Ann stores in 49 states.
