    Ben Franklin Stores

    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.

    Thanks so much,
    Phyllis

    I enjoyed shopping at both the local store (which closed) and their online store (until it closed too). Maybe this website will help? I have no idea how recent this listing is, though.

    I just went to http://www.YellowPages.com and typed in Ben Franklin Store with the location of "Ohio". Nine stores were listed. Hope this helps.

    Louisville, Ky, on Shelbyville Road . I tried to find an address for it, but it did not show up. It is still open and it is in Middletown. It is located in the Village Square Shopping Center 40223. Phone: 502-245-9259.

    Saw one for Kokomo. That would be closer to Liberty?

    Was looking at the Indiana map and you could get on 69 go north to Kokomo exit.

    If you get on this site, you want to type in cities/town. Hit the "k" for the heck of it and Kokomo is nearby.Ky may be another close locale.

    Used to be one in Broadway, VA, but since my DD moved from VA to MS, I don't get over there any more, and so don't know if it is still open. We always found some fabric there we couldn't do without.

    Yes, the one in Bowling Green, Ohio is awesome. It has a little bit of everything. Bowling Green is about 20 miles south of Toledo.

    I used to go to Ben Franklin with my sister, I can't remember the town, Siren, Webster - I can't remember, but it was the neatest store and they had fabric like you wouldn't believe. I always stopped there with her and buy a whole slew of fabric. Loved that store. Now, I can't remember if they closed the store or if they discontinued the fabric end. Edie

    I loved going to the Ben Franklin stores, along with F.W. Woolworth's and TG&Y.

    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.

    Hello, I know that there is one in Coldwater, Ohio. It is located in a small strip mall.
