Joann’s story began in 1943 with a cheese shop founded by immigrants Hilda and Berthold Reich, Sigmund and Mathilda Rohrbach, and Justin and Alma Zimmerman. In 1960 they added fabric to diversify their inventory, and it sold so well that by 1967 they stopped selling cheese altogether and began calling themselves the Cleveland Fabric Store. In 1969, they expanded and changed the name to Jo-Ann’s Fabrics. Since then, the company has acquired other businesses and rebranded under the name Joann’s, so as to encompass more craft items beyond fabric. Joann’s vision is to “...inspire the creative spirit in each of us” and help every customer find their “happy place” through selection, service, and presentation.
