    My local WM's don't even have fabric sections anymore... and you'd even be hard pressed to find the sewing section.

    Our walmart is the only fabric place within 25 miles of where we live. I'm not sure what will happen if they close that section down. We'll be left with nothing. There is an upholstery place about 20miles away but the lightest nylon cloth they carry is 300 D cordura. Shopping "locally" is just simply not an option.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Don't forget that all of those people working in your Wal-Mart store are local. In many areas the big box retailers are the largest employers. I think people tend to forget that when they complain about the "evil empire."
