    our WM had decided to take the fabric manager and put her in lawn and garden(which she was not happy about at all) and have the stationery manager run the fabric dept and stationery. Before they did that there was always someone in fabric's now your lucky to find anybody there. I think they are trying to find excuses to get rid of fabric's, purposly cause sales to drop by not offering service.

    All I ever find at WM is a little sign that says "I'm in the crafts dept.". Ummm, the crafts dept is only 2 aisles wide and the fabric takes up one. No bell to ring, I finally found a lady and asked if she could help, she told me no, but I can get someone to help you. I was very surprised that a gentleman came out of nowhere and cut my fabric for me.

    I had the same experience. I finally went to another department and asked for help. They paged overhead for help in fabrics. Another wait and finally I left.
    We don't have a fabric department now. We got a new super store without fabric, just a few notions and some battig.

    We still have fabric in our store. Most of the time I have to pick up the phone in fabric and punch the service desk button and say, "I need some help in fabric, please." They get on the intercom and then someone will usually come and cut for me.

    I think that our store will be on its way out next year when they remodel. We will then have no place in town to pick up fabric. Sad.

    When that happens I usually lay on that button to be as annoying as possible. Someone will then show up. :)

    I have Walmart's phone number in my cell phone and when no one comes to the fabric department after I have waited, I call them and tell the person who answers that I have been waiting to have fabric cut and and rang the bell and no one comes, PLEASE send someone back there. If no one comes, I call back and ask for the manager and tell him how long I have been standing back there. I usually don't have to stand very long. Works every time.

    When we had a fabric department they were great. So helpful. But now it's gone. So sad.

    I've watched them cut enough fabric that I know how to use their scan guns. So needless to say, I've done my own :):) And I've shown the guy who mops the floor how to use the scan gun. We sometimes have to be resourceful.

    My favorite walmart cutting table story is:
    In North Carolina we were visiting our kids, and I needed some fabric. We went into the local Walmart and found out the person who manned the gun counter also cut the fabric. I waited while she sold a man a basket of bullets. They locked up the baby formula and razors but the bullets weren't locked up. Didn't even crack a joke with the fabric lady and was very polite. Wasn't sure if it was a scan gun or a loaded gun in her apron. Was pretty sure she didn't have any trouble with smart a**es :) That store rocked!!! I wanted her job. And I sorta still do. Bet she sleeps good at night.
