    JoAnn's was EMPTY this morning!

    I have to wonder if it has to do with the economy.....I have NEVER been to JoAnn's on a day when they had an active 60% coupon and not had to stand in line for a ridiculous amount of time. Must admit, it was wonderful to go in and check out within 10 minutes!
    Life has given me so much more than scraps, but I make quilts anyway!

    I think they are saving their pennies for the black friday sale.

    I didn't get a 60% off coupon wahhhh ... They just open a new super sized joanns and closed the smaller one by my house and it has been a mad house in there. I miss my small one. Would have preffered driving long distances to get to the big one so as to not deal with the crowds.

    That's what I was thinking too. It's probably going to be super crowded on Friday.

    I went into Joanns yesterday for the first time in a very long time.....and to my extreme surprise the whole store had been done over! Everything was in a different place, but I didn't care, I'd find it, and it would be easy, the aisles were wider and not cluttered with all kinds of stuff as it had always been before, the displays were very nice and easy to see what you wanted, and at the cutting table you pulled a number and when they came to your number, they announced it over an intercom and your number showed all lit up on a box hanging from the ceiling. NO more lines of women jockeying for a better place in line. No line at all!...when you hear your number you go to the cutting table with your fabric to be cut! WONDERFUL. All the salespersons had been replaced...hooray... and everyone was especially helpful and pleasant.....WOW. What a pleasant surprise. I just might start going back to Joanns for things!

    If you check Joanns website you can print the coupons from there. That's how I got my 60% off and also the 20% off total purchase.

    60% off reg priced items? I saw (online) the Christmas fabric was bumped from 50% to 60% off today. DH and I are going to stop in tonight and I sure hope the lines are not huge for me!

    Wow. It's empty here only because of the snow that is coming in a couple of hours. I suppose they could be waiting for black friday. This will be my 3rd year of no Black Friday shopping. I sometimes miss it, but but the fun of it disappeared when it became more cutthroat. We few very early shoppers always got stuff like hot cider or coffee. Never happens now.

    I was out yesterday near a Joann's that I normally don't visit (farther than the usual Joann's). When I pulled into the parking lot, I found out that it was no longer there...just an empty store. It's in an area of several store closings so I don't know if it was a bad location, bad economy or a bad sign for Joann's. I hope to find out that they just moved to a better location.

    I went to my LQS this morning, they had a surprise 30 % off everything!! I was so excited, I love the fabrics so much more than Joann's, although I do go there when I need backing and batting, etc.!

    I was at JoAnn's today about 10:30, they were busy but they had alot of salespersons working so the checkout line went fast. I got a 60 percent coupon in an email and use that.

    I went to JoAnn's today, it wasn't that crowded but I had to wait at the cutting counter. That was okay, though, because I got some really good prices on the fleece. All their fleece was 40% off and according to my receipt, I saved more than I spent.

    I guess it didn't stop a lot of the folks as there were 114 car crashes during that 1/2 day snowfall

    Both my Joanns are busy so I go early in the morning during the week. Weekends are impossible.
    Black Friday the lines are all the way around the back and sides of the store so it is not worth it to stand in line for hours.

    I agree with that sentiment! I can't imagine wanting anything badly enough to stand in line for hours!

    The checkout lady at Wal-Mart today said, "It is so QUIET today!" I think the same thing as others, that people are waiting until Friday. It's going to be madness!

    I was at a new store in Elk River(MN), yesterday, the lines were long, extremely long. The workers were helpful and friendly. I used every coupon they allowed. : ) I love a sale.

    The fist full of coupons was burning a hole in my hand, but I resisted. We made a trip out to get toner, could just have well ordered on-line, because the store was out too. Spent my quarterly budget at quilt shows and LQS sales last month. On a diet until the first of the year. ()
