Though I would rather get a root canal than shop there because I hate the crowds, like many of my readers I live in an area that has no local craft store, so sometimes I have no options when I'm in a pinch. My closest bead shop is even a good 30 minute trip downtown, and don't even get me started about the parking!
So like it or not, I'm often forced to shop there, and I have to admit, the prices are better than just about any place else you shop. However, in many of their stores they are now expanding the electronics division or starting a party supply area, and that means good-bye to the fabric and craft area of the store.
My fellow Guide, Debbie from the About.com Sewing site, has a blog post about this situation as well as information for those who want to voice their opinion to the Wal-mart powers that be. You go girl!
So, what's the deal at our local Wal-mart? Are they moving in the big screen TVs and moving out the hemp and beads?
