    This morning's newpaper says that JoAnn Fabrics is coming back to Grand Junction!!! It closed down last August and I was afraid it would be a permanent closure, I'm so happy I could cry!

    We are getting a new Hobby Lobby, we have one now, the new one will be lots bigger but the fabric department is not going to be enlarged. How dumb is that?

    The newspaper said sometime this fall. It 's going to be in the old movie theater location inside the mall, they will be doing extensive remodeling.

    For anyone near Florence, SC, they just opened a new super Joann's that is so big it looks more like a warehouse. Beautiful fabrics and craft supplies up to the yawhoo! Only 1 hour from me! Love it!

    In Oregon there are rumors of a couple of local Joann Fabric Stores moving and/or merging with another store.

    Well, lets face it, the old one there was miserably small and hard to shop and find what you wanted. I always liked Hobby Lobby much better when I got ovet to GJ to shop.
