REDDING, Calif. -

Joanne's Fabrics is getting ready to make the big move into an empty building once occupied by the old Circuit City in Redding.

The electronics chain on Dana Drive folded during the Great Recession.

Construction workers were busy remodeling the 28,000 square foot building Tuesday afternoon.

The new and improved craft store will feature a larger fabric and craft department,  more classes dedicated to craft education and a larger staff to man the different areas.

The new location opens on April 12th.
