About 2.6 million payment cards at Michaels Stores and another 400,000 at subsidiary Aaron Brothers may have been affected in a card skimming attack that compromised its point-of-sale systems, the retailer said Thursday.
In a separate incident in May 2011, Michaels had alerted that customer credit and debit card information may have been compromised after it was found that PIN pad tampering may have occurred at its stores in the Chicago area.
