    I was in Walmart today and asked the woman at the cutting counter if all of the fabric departments are coming back and she said that when that store turned into a super walmart the manager had a choice to keep either live pets (fish, gerbils, hampster) or a fabric department and he of chorse chose to keep the fabric department and also told me that if the fabric department was at a walmart store and was removed it wont be coming back, once its gone its gone. This was the Shelby Twp, MI store. My local store is in Chesterfield, MI

    Our Walmart kept both the fabric and fish when they remodeled. I'm not sure the associates really know what the right answer is.

    our Walmart in Caro, MI got rid of the fabric and fish also... We now have at least a 30 minute drive to get to anywhere that sells fabric, be it Joann's or a LQS. :(

    Our walmart doesn't have fabric section anymore. I spoke to someone in the store the other day and she told me maybe they might bring it back when they remodel, but she wasn't sure. The remodeling won't be until next year sometime. I'm keeping my finger crossed. :roll:

    Of our two Walmarts, one still has fabric and live fish. And they have even added to the fabric dept. I was so excited to see new bolts of nice quality fabric in the store this evening. Seems like there is always someone buying fabric. This store would lose big time to do away with fabrics.

    In the Yukon Okla Store, they did remove the fish & fabric depts.a couple of years ago. They are now remodeling and there is now a fabric dept. again with Bolts of fabric. Small right now but more arriving weekly. So yes....Some Stores are bringing it back. Sorry they must not be at your Store, but maybe when they remodel, they will.

    That's good to hear. I hope they at least bring back the fabric dept. in the Guthrie store. I'm 11 miles from Edmond and 10 from Guthrie

    Our Super Wal-Mart never had live pets or fish. They remodeled & took out the fabric dept. We do have precuts, but I never see anyone buying any.

    It seems there are different answers from different WalMart associates.

    One Wal Mart in this area has fabric and have almost a full size fabric Dept., I really need no more fabrics. I like to know most has fabric, just in case.
