Sommeone posted on my hometown newspaper's forum that Walmart is doing away with fabrics.  Is this true?  Has anyone heard anything to substantiate this???  God I hope not!!!!!!!!!!   Cry

I'm worried about this too.  My boyfriend works in Walmart, in the electronics section which is right by the fabrics, but he hasn't heard anything to confirm or deny this.  I have warned him that I won't stop by and visit him anymore at work if they do get rid of it  Wink

Him: I think we've been on the same page for a while now.
Me: What if we're on the same page, but in different books?

I think Wal-Mart has a toll-free customer service number, 1-800-WAL-MART. You could call and ask. And register your disapproval if it's true.

I hope not. As much as I don't like Walmart, it is the only place I can go to buy fabric, unless I drive a 4 hour round trip to Hancock.

i don't know about getting rid of fabric/craft area, BUT i can tell you that in the remodeled super-sprawlmarts i've seen the area seems A LOT smaller.

maybe it's a regional thing?

Our Walmart is practically empty of fabric now!!! The electronics dept. has doubled in size though. (Which hubby is happy with.) Very little crafting supplies in general remain. I was very disappointed last time I went. Luckly we have two other craft stores in the area. But they are a lot more expensive.

I guess I'm just like everyone else, I would rather not shop at Walmart but the prices are always so much cheaper that you seem drawn to them. I always come home saying I hate them. But I always go back .  Roll Eyes

My Aunt who works for a textile company, said that some of the Wal-mart's are getting rid of their fabric departments. So yeah, I think it may be a regional thing, I am not sure.

I couldn\'t get anyone when I called so I sent WM an email, still waiting to hear back. I\'m hoping to get maybe a general idea of whch stores are doing away with the department.  Stupid Walmart.

Our newest Super Wal-Marts have much smaller craft/fabric departments than the older ones.  In fact, the new one they just opened last week, about three miles from my house, has only one small rack of fabric and about 1/4 of the selection of yarn as the four-year-old Wal-Mart that is only two miles down the road from the new one.   Undecided
