HUDSON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, the leading fabric and craft specialty retailer in America, is celebrating the invaluable work that teachers do during Teacher Appreciation Week. This exclusive event happens Monday, May 7, through Friday, May 11, at all Jo-Ann stores, and teachers enrolled in the Jo-Ann Teachers Rewards program can save substantially on a wide variety of fabric, craft and decor items.

Teachers will receive 20% off the brands they purchase most like Crayola®, BusyKids™ and Elmer’s®. To qualify for the discount, teachers must present current teacher identification along with state-issued photo identification upon checkout. Throughout the year, teachers enrolled in the program receive 15% off their total purchases. Some exclusions do apply.

‘‘At Jo-Ann, we value the dedication of our nation’s teachers, and understand that, in many cases, teachers pay out-of-pocket for classroom supplies,” said Beth Shivak, manager of special events for Jo-Ann. ‘‘That is why we feel that teachers deserve more opportunities to save. The special Teacher Appreciation Week savings and the year-round Teacher Rewards Program are our ways of saying ‘Thank You’ to them.’‘

Teachers can enroll in the Teacher Rewards Program in-store by visiting Guest Services or asking a Team Member for assistance. Teachers can also sign up online at Joann.com/teachers.
