UPS, Michaels Rollout Access Points
October 9, 2019
Michaels Companies, the largest arts and crafts retail chain in North
America, and UPS have completed a rollout of UPS Access Point locations
to more than 1,100 Michaels Companies stores nationwide – just in time
for Halloween crafting and decorations. 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
e-commerce retailers that offer UPS drop off, all while picking up their
favorite seasonal and DIY essentials.
“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,” said
Matthew Rubin, Michaels Senior Vice President of Business Development
and Growth. “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
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,”
said Kevin Warren, UPS’s chief marketing officer. "Our UPS My Choice®
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."
The UPS and Michaels partnership allows the busiest of creative
enthusiasts to bundle their to-dos and take control of their ecommerce
deliveries and returns at their favorite Michaels location.
