There is one in Utica, Ohio, although they have put a Family Dollar store there now. I hope they stay in business as their fabric and supplies are great.

[QUOTE=pdriggs;7066105]I saw in another post that there are still some Ben Franklin stores in operation. I have been trying for a few days now to find a list of ones in Indiana, Ohio, or Kentucky that are open.

If you know of any, I would appreciate knowing about them. I really enjoyed shopping at them when I could find one.

I shop at BF in Knoxville, TN all the BF..

Thanks to everyone for your input. It has been helpful. I will be on the lookout when we travel.

There was a store in Evansville that closed, but there appears to be another one in a different area of Evansville. I need to check it out, as that is where our family lives.

One problem with the internet is that a lot of closed stores are still being listed as open. I will just have to call each one in places we are visiting to see if they are open. I am really excited about finding them again!

Thanks again,

Greenfield Ohio and Carolton Ohio are two that I know of . The one in greenfield is combined in a grocery store but they have lots of fabric and such I visit there often . The one in Carolton Ohio is your old fashioned store , like stepping back in time , old wood floors that creek when you walk, bulk candy counters and all . So many things you would never find in regular chain stores .I went there as a child with my grandma it was always a huge treat to go , when she passed two years ago I went to " town" for old times sake because knew I would never travel up there again . I spent several hours in the old Ben Franklin store that was exactly as I remembered it was 40 years ago .

"Ben Franklins" (that I know) are in Amherst, Ohio (NO fabric); and in Oberlin, Ohio - VERY nice fabric department of frills and much more economical than JoAnns or LQS. A new gal took over that dept. and last I was there a couple months ago, I was very impressed.
