The New Jersey-based retailer will operate in the space next to Fresh Thyme Farmers Market. Its opening weekend will feature deals, giveaways, discounts, and $10 gift cards for the first one hundred customers.

The 18,000-sq. ft. facility will feature 40,000 specialized arts and crafts products and materials, a news release said.

“Over the past 33 years, A.C. Moore has been committed to providing affordable, high-quality craft materials to consumers all along the East Coast,” said A.C. Moore President Anthony Piperno. “We are thrilled to announce our first Kentucky location in Newport. We look forward to sharing our brand, products and vision with the community, and providing inspiration and an impeccable customer experience to area artists, crafters, makers, and teachers.”

The Newport A.C. Moore is one of 13 new locations the retailer has opened in the past 10 months, and the second store to open in the Greater Cincinnati area. The retailer recently announced the launch of e-commerce on ACMoore.com, featuring expedited shipping throughout the U.S. and to more than 180 countries worldwide.
