I just read on another quilting forum that Wal-Mart has announced it will be bringing back fabric to their stores. Has anyone here heard this? Oh, also that if they are remodeling the store they will not take the fabric away.

I so hope this is true, as we have very little choice in our small town.

That would be great, maybe they have found out how much fabric they really sold.

I would like to know how they determine which stores have fabric & which don't! I have heard of so many rural Walmarts eliminating their fabric departments & leaving their customers with very long drives to other fabric stores. Our store was remodeled a year or so ago & they kept the fabric department- much to my delight & surprise. It is smaller, but still decent. I live north of LA in an area that has other fabric stores & they have fabric at my Walmart. But why do they close the departments of stores that leave their customes with not many, if any other choices?

Our WalMart is being remodeled right now and I almost cried when I went in a couple of weeks ago and the fabric dept. was gone.... I eventually did a happy dance when I found the new fabric dept... It's beautiful and has a better selection!

I would love to see our fabric dept. go back to how it was. There is only 1 row of fabrics.

I sure hope it comes back in some or all of the stores around here.

I live in a rural area. The closest JoAnns is 60 miles away. We have a LQS about 20 minutes from here, but I like having the option of not spending $9.99 a yard there. Our Walmart has a fabric department, but it's not what it used to be.

I would love to see our fabric department come back. There is only one fabric store in town and they kinda have a corner on the market so to speak.
