was in Joann fabrics today and the saleslady came over to me (sad huh that I am in there so much she "knows" me) - anyway, she told me that in Sept they are opening a Super Joann Fabrics in the old Circuit City building and closing the two smaller ones in town. So, what is a Super Joanns Fabric, other than will have a lot more fabric (she said). Is it just more crafts etc also. Does anyone have one where they live?

just an opinion; it would be nice if joanns had more fabric and less vines, flowers cakes and craft stuff. in our town anyway. there is a hobby lobby and a michaels within 1/2 block of joanns and a pat catan's craft place 2 miles down the road.

Our Super Joann's has a Viking Center in them. And yes, the whole store is expanded and carries more things.

If I am not mistaken the one in Porter Ranch CA is a super Joanns. It is much bigger than the one in our town with a much bigger & better fabric section & a huge home dec section. Every department from floral to scrpabooking to framing is bigger & expanded. They also have candles & lots of seasonal stuff. They offer classes too. It really is nicer than a regular Joann's.

I prefer the super Joanns too. They have a more comfortable atmosphere than any of the other 3 that are closest to me. Only thing is it take 20-30 mins to get to one and I am very happy with my little one that is 5 mins away.

We have two Joann's in our area. One is smaller than the other. Lately the smaller store is not filling the shelves and they are getting bare. Makes me so sad.

Our Joanne's is quite large and carries lots of fabric as well as crafting items. One of the clerks told me it's not considered a super store because there's no framing department, but otherwise it is like a super store.

Dunno if my closest JoAnns is "super" or not, it does have a Viking dealership inside, but it's not that clean or tidy and the crafts and JUNK (cheap toys, etc) make me not enjoy bring there. It also smells so strongly of potpourri that I get a headache. I worked at JoAnns as a teen and our store was smaller but cleaner and mostly fabric and sewing supplies, less crafts.

if you prefer shopping at a home depot rather than ace hardware, then you will like the super joanns. too much junk in them and robotic employees.
