HOMOSASSA AND INVERNESS, FLORIDA -- I learned from the attendant at the fabric counter that Walmart will no longer sell fabric soon. This is a major disappointment because no one else in our county or city sells fabric. I will be forced to drive almost fifty miles for fabrics! I cannot say how very disappointed I am. I am also writing all of the fabric houses I can find and giving this information. Perhaps someone will hear our plea.
FORSYTH, GEORGIA -- I was saddened when the Wal Mart in Forsyth, Ga. discontinued their fabric department. They continue to have sewing machines, but no fabric. Now the nearest place I can purchase fabric is 35 miles from my home. Wal-Mart, would you reconsider and have fabric and notions in your stores?
RENO, NEVADA -- We who live in Reno Nevada are very upset about Walmart not selling fabric anymore. Here where we live, there are not many, if any true discount fabric stores, which means those of us who are low income are now without an affordable means in which to create the gifts and crafts we envision from time to time. If some of the many Wal-mart stores located around the country sell guns and ammo and clearly find a place for that, why can't we have FABRIC?
CAPE CORAL, FLORIDA -- Very disappointed that since you remodel your old stores you take out the fabric department - bad choice. A faithful purchaser, and your fabric was at a great price and now it is pathetic you took it out. And very it is time consuming that I don't have time to do is drive around and look for old stores that haven't remodeled yet to find the patterns I need. I believe you should talk to the purchasers of the departments and put it back - a lot of unhappy crafters!!!
GALESBURG, ILLINOIS -- Yesterday our new Wal-Mart Super center opened in Galesburg, Il. What I suspected was reality. No Fabric Department. I have a sewing business, I did much of my shopping at the old store, now there is no fabric in the new store. Don't know the reasoning for this, but I guess the big executives can't understand why fabric would be an important department to have in their store. Perhaps they have found something different from wear on their bodies.
I would like to know what they have found to make their wearing apparel out of, and where it can be purchased. Even though I am a small consumer I spent a fair amount when I shopped at Wal-Mart. My spending at Wal-Mart has ended. Wake up America! Wal-Mart is not the general consumers friend. I urge you to look around and not support them. They couldn't care less about you. Please respond.
FEDERAL WAY, WASHINGTON -- Walmart is closing their fabric sales area in most stores. They will not sell FABRIC or sewing supplies anymore.
FABRIC - and fabric alone is what brings many of us who sew into Walmart. While waiting for prescriptions to be filled, we spend the time looking for fabric. Fabric may not be Walmart's biggest "money maker" but it's the fabric that actually brings us into the store in the first place. We then buy prescriptions & other items. Sewers & Quilters: Please write to Walmart & express your disappointment.
