Retailer To Fill Mervyn’s Location

Sonora, CA– Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores will be one of the retailers locating in the former Mervyn’s location in Sonora.


Economic Development Director Larry Cope says he is hopeful that the new retailer will be a success. “We believe it will be a great addition to the community and it is just one of the retailers to fill the Mervyn’s location. So far we will not announce the other tenant or tenants because they’re not ready to.”


Cope says shoppers can look forward to a fall 2011 opening.


Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is the nation’s largest specialty retailer of fabrics, and one of the largest in specialty crafts, including sewing, home decorating and apparel. Jo-Ann’s currently operates 746 stores in 48 states with 518 small-format stores averaging 14,700 square feet and 228 large-format stores averaging 36,500 square feet.
