In a statement released Saturday evening, Michaels Stores has revealed that it along with the Secret Service is investigating a potential security breach involving customers’ credit card information. The arts and crafts store has 1,000 retail stores across the United States and Canada.

“We are concerned there may have been a data security attack on Michaels that may have affected our customers’ payment card information and we are taking aggressive action to determine the nature and scope of the issue,” said Chuck Rubin, CEO.

“While we have not confirmed a compromise to our systems, we believe it is in the best interest of our customers to alert them to this potential issue so they can take steps to protect themselves, for example, by reviewing their payment card account statements for unauthorized charges.”
