Finding Your Happy Place

For over 75 years, JOANN has been in the business of helping customers find their
creative ‘happy place’. Whether they’re a weekend knitter or top-selling Etsy crafter,
JOANN has made it a mission to cater to the specific needs of its diverse range of customers.

Its one-of-a-kind concept store in Ohio is a great example of this unwavering dedication to customer individuality, featuring elements like the Craft Creator—a kiosk where customers can put their personal touch on trending Pinterest projects—as well as concierge sewing services for those wanting their own bespoke creations.

But for JOANN, it was important that this attention to individuality carried into every interaction that a customer had with them, including the times they reach out for support outside of the store. Because helping customers find their happy place shouldn’t just be an in-store experience, but a JOANN experience.

Since our partnership with Gladly, our customer response has been incredibly positive. Not only have we seen significant results in reduced response times and email backlog, but Gladly has helped us develop more meaningful relationships with our customers. For a brand that stands for individuality, that is the most valuable service a partner can provide.
