The Michaels Companies which is the largest arts and crafts retail chain in North America and UPS announced the complete rollout of UPS Access Point locations to more than 1,100 Michaels Companies stores nationwide.
As the first of the recently announced retail partners to offer UPS Access Point locations, customers are now able to ship UPS packages directly to a Michaels store, as well as drop off pre-labeled shipments and make returns to ecommerce retailers that offer UPS drop off.
“Michaels has long been recognized as a one-stop-shop for all décor and creative needs and providing value to our customers through UPS Access Point locations will bring added convenience to our shoppers. Whether picking up a package from one of our stores, dropping off a pre-labeled return package or shipping off the latest fine art, DIY projects – or anything else you’d like to ship – directly from your favorite Michaels location, we’re here for you every step of the way.”
Matthew Rubin, Michaels Senior Vice President of Business Development and Growth
More Convenience for Residential Customers
For customers who prefer to have their delivery preferences set to their local Michaels, the UPS My Choice for home solution allows packages to be automatically rerouted to the Michaels of their choice.
UPS is also working with merchants to provide shoppers the option of selecting their nearest UPS Access Point location during the checkout process.
“By partnering with Michaels, we’re able to make it easier to do business with UPS in ways that suit our customers’ busy lifestyles. Our UPS My Choice® for home solution, used by more than 60 million consumers throughout the world, pairs seamlessly with our UPS Access Point® locations, giving our customers more choice and control.”
Kevin Warren, UPS’s chief marketing officer
