it's like they are going to destroy a perfectly good dept and put some other stuff in there and put a new fancy name on it and say it's better

From what I have been reading, I remember they said 80% of stores will have the fabric removed. So, I'm hoping this means atleast the places in small towns that don't have anywhere else to go will keep it.

i went to a local walmart while visiting the fam (they don't have one, but are between 2 in other towns).  the fabric dept was cut down to a wide aisle with fabric on either side, plus some more in the middle, along with patterns, notions, & the cutting table.  it was a pretty sad selection.  even sadder is that i don't think there is a fabric store around.

i'm thinking it would be money better spent to focus on "celebrating life" by cleaning the stores & bathrooms and hiring people who actually want to help you instead of act like you've ruined their day by asking them for assistance...that would go a long way towards making me not want to hang myself by the time i'm done shopping there every time i go.  Wink

hmmm I agree with you.  Most walmarts could use a good cleaning.  If they get rid of the fabric and mess up everything thats over there I will have to cry.  Sad

Thanks for posting that smileygirl. I'm a little confused by their answer tho...they really tell you a whole lot of nothing don't they?

I hope that their "life celebrations centre" is a flop and they just put it back the way it was.  Wink (That was a little mean, too....)

i was told that firearms will be stopped but ammo and other hunting type stuff will still be around ( they will still carry air rifles/pistols, paintballs and bb guns just not the big stuff like 12 gauges etc) And I work in a major hunting area ...southern ohio about 10 minutes from KY or WV . It sucks

Dear amazing Craftsters,

I desperately need your help! I went to the craft area in my local Wal-Mart and the cutting lady (who knows me by first name lol) tells me that our fabric section is one that is being "phased out". This is catastrophic for me. The nearest fabric store is 92 miles away. Mainly because WM undercut the TWO fabric stores that WERE here when it opened. I litterally felt ill when she told me. Please, I know I'm not alone in this. Please please, call 1-800-walmart and complain, beg, plead, threaten (lol just kidding) and let them know that fabric should not be "phased out". Even if this doesn't affect you, please help the rest of us underprivileged Craftsters. I know who well Craftsters work to help each other out. Don't fail me now Cheesy!
