    Wow. It's empty here only because of the snow that is coming in a couple of hours. I suppose they could be waiting for black friday. This will be my 3rd year of no Black Friday shopping. I sometimes miss it, but but the fun of it disappeared when it became more cutthroat. We few very early shoppers always got stuff like hot cider or coffee. Never happens now.

    I was out yesterday near a Joann's that I normally don't visit (farther than the usual Joann's). When I pulled into the parking lot, I found out that it was no longer there...just an empty store. It's in an area of several store closings so I don't know if it was a bad location, bad economy or a bad sign for Joann's. I hope to find out that they just moved to a better location.

    I went to my LQS this morning, they had a surprise 30 % off everything!! I was so excited, I love the fabrics so much more than Joann's, although I do go there when I need backing and batting, etc.!

    I was at JoAnn's today about 10:30, they were busy but they had alot of salespersons working so the checkout line went fast. I got a 60 percent coupon in an email and use that.

    I went to JoAnn's today, it wasn't that crowded but I had to wait at the cutting counter. That was okay, though, because I got some really good prices on the fleece. All their fleece was 40% off and according to my receipt, I saved more than I spent.

    I guess it didn't stop a lot of the folks as there were 114 car crashes during that 1/2 day snowfall

    Both my Joanns are busy so I go early in the morning during the week. Weekends are impossible.
    Black Friday the lines are all the way around the back and sides of the store so it is not worth it to stand in line for hours.

    I agree with that sentiment! I can't imagine wanting anything badly enough to stand in line for hours!
