Bring Back The Fabric!

A few weeks ago, I was in the market for a piece of gold fabric for an activity with the young women at church. In our Parish, there are only two places to buy fabric. One place is a bit pricey, and so I headed to the other place--Wally World (WalMart). As I was searching for the perfect piece of fabric, I noticed everything was marked 50% off. I asked why, and was informed that they were getting rid of all their fabric, and that in a few days all left over fabric was going to be 75% off. I panicked! I could not believe my ears.

I changed my status on my Facebook to something like, "I can't believe WalMart is getting rid of all their fabric". Quickly, I received comments about this. Everyone was devastated. Some already knew about this, as their local WalMarts had already closed out all their fabric. I emailed WalMart about how disappointed we all were about this situation. The reply I got--they were sorry, but due to the fact most people are no longer interested in purchasing fabric, they felt that it was in the best interest of the customer to get rid of the fabric and replace it with something that the customer was more interested in. What are they talking about!? My sister can't even get fabric in her whole county. We are going to be down to one place in our parish, which is very pricey. I've lived in small towns where I actually would have to travel over an hour to get fabric. Sorry, WalMart, but I think you are doing an injustice to your customers. Believe it or not, there are still quite a few of us that purchase fabric on a regular basis.
