I haven't been in Walmart for over a month and had to go buy some fabric for a table cloth for our picnic table. Well when i got there they have all these short bolts with about 2 to 4 yards on them in a big bin. I asked the gals that cut the fabric if they were closing the fabric department. What they are now doing is offering short bolts on cardboard. They are trying something different to see how well it will go. This way you don't have to wait for someone to cut the fabric and the price is right! They still will be caring the regular stock that needs cuting.
