I've been to 2 malls this week. The Lewiscraft in one was having a store closing sale. No biggie, since I never shop at that location, but today the one at Yorkdale mall was gone!

Have they gone out of business or are they just pulling out of Toronto. Or is it just those 2 locations. Any other Canucks know?

All the other craft stores are very far from me and not on subways lines or they just suck. Walmart isn't all that great either.

Anyone know a good place for supplies in Toronto? Huh

I live in Edmonton (Alberta) and I noticed yesterday that the Lewiscraft wasn't where it used to be. I found it a couple of spots down in the area that always has the closing out sales. Unfortunately I know the one in my area is closing. I don't know about any of the other locations in Edmonton or the rest of Canada though.

Maybe there is hope then. There was a 3rd on in downtown Toronto. Maybe its still there. I just bought DMC floss for 89 cents a skien at the local ma and pa store. I was positive it was cheaper at Lewiscraft.

Actually I asked at a Lewiscraft location yesterday and it sounds like they're going out of business completely.  I think it said in the paper they thought they'd be able to save them by just closing ten stores, but the courts ordered them to sell off all their assets to pay off debts.  It's kinda sad, there aren't a lot of craft stores within walking distance of my place.... and now the only one I had is gone Sad

We don't have any Lewiscraft store in Quebec but I am sorry to say that I heard that they are going out of business permanently too.

That being said, there is nothing mentioned about it on their website Huh? http://lewiscraft.ca/index.php

I haven't been to Kingsway recently, but I was told that most of the Edmonton stores (Bonnie Doon for sure) will be open until May 30.  They're having an "up to 70% off" sale to get rid of what merchandise they have left.  The store in City Centre has already closed up shop for good.
