    If there is anyone out there that knows how to start a petition, I wish someone would start one and see if we can get WAL-MART to keep the fabric departments. THANKS P BRACKIN

    I just signed the petition, but have little hope it will work. The consumer is seldom heard these days.

    it would be interesting to know how they decide where to have fabric. we have 4 super centers (three were remodeled from the smaller stores) and they all have the fabric/craft centers. there's another store going in just down the road. we'll see about that one.

    what bothers me is that jo-ann in our area needs some stiff competition! HL doesn't compete, nor wal-mart. One of the Hancock stores closed so there is only one up north, does have some nice things, just too far!

    Well I live in the South, which is Greenville, SC a very southern state, and we have four Wally's Worlds (aka Walmart) and they all still have fabric. But as Loretta said the stores she is near, there is not as much nice fabric. But Walmart was the biggest buyer of Sham. & Sons and they quit buying from them (I think that alot of the nice fabric came from there) and now they went out of business. A lot of people blame Wally World for them going out of business but you know how the old saying goes, don't put all your eggs in one basket. Apparently they depended on Wallyworld's business to survive. Ohhhhh, gab gab gab, and should be sew sew sew, todalu............

    Don't know if this is true or not but just heard yesterday that when some of the Walmarts to to Super status they will retain the fabric dept. Guess I'll just have to go there and check it out because our WM just went Super recently.
