    I went out to our Walmart after work this morning ( midnite). They are downsizing the fabrics. They had alot on clearance for 50% off. So I stocked up , there were even some new prints that they just got in . They are keeping some of the ugliest fabrics tho. some really loose woven stuff and poly knit stuff. I now have more fabric than Walmart!!

    I emailed them last week and gave them a piece of my mind. Not a very big piece cause mine isn't that big to begin with! I got an auto response thing back, so we'll see what happens.

    Our fabric is already gone at our local Wal-Mart. They didn't even have a sale with the remaining fabric, but shipped it to another store. Everything is a mess and they have moved everything, even in the grocery dept. The only things that are where they were is the pharmacy, meat, milk and deli. Every time I go in there, things are in a different place. I forget half of what I was shopping for because it takes so long to find it. Unfortunately, we don't have many shopping alternatives, so I am stuck. Wal-Mart has bankrupted Hills, Ames and is slowly strangling our closest K-Mart. It is a shame.

    You really should email them and let them know what you think...they don't know unless we speak up.

    I just finished my scathing customer commentary on the Walmart site. I let them know that after the fabric is gone, K-mart will be next in line for my shopping $ for ready wear. Albertsons and Safeway already get a larger portion of my Meat business and it still is questionable as to weather or not they will win out for my Toilet paper business. :twisted The last time I went they were still selling some fabric but getting close to the end, I forget what date the girl told me. Then Yea they are not even going to have a sale, but will ship it off to some other outlet. And I meant what I said about less spending at Wallyworld. Really their prices have gone up while quality is down on many things. Unless I can save more than a $1.00 per item on the same product Why bother with the crowds. Are any of you willing or able to boycott Walmart for a time to make a point?

    Susan: I emailed them last week and told them exactly the same thing. Also threw in the bit about charity quilts going by the wayside unless inexpensive fabric was to be had and told them that Mr Sam ran things better. I doubt that it made a difference but at least I put my 2 cents in.

    I think a massive boycott would be the only way. Even if that would mean more than a drop in the bucket. But seriously this is a company that due to its sheer size moves into a community and forces many smaller concerns out of business and then begins to ignore customer/consumer concerns. The major means of getting the attention of a conglomerate is to hit them in the pocket book. Image may play a part. Maybe we could appeal to K-mart or Target at the same time to begin carrying the goods Walmart now refuses to? I think I will look into contacting those stores and ask them.

    We have a brand new super Wal-Mart near us. They have no fabric, but do carry a few zippers, buttons, rotary cutters, ribbon, thread, etc.
    We have a Joanns in that town too. The closest quilt shop is approx 35 miles.
    Haven't checked the other "local" Wal-Marts, as they are in the 35-60 miles away. If I have to go that far would prefer a quilt shop or Hobby Lobby.

    Wally World just stinks now anyway. Have you tried finding a pair of shoes lately? The fabric department in Yreka is still there and the gal working there told me that the complaints helped them keep their fabric section. Keep on complaining and boycotting. We may not get what we want, but neither will they (our money).
