Thank you for your message.
Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding the fabricdepartment in your local store. In keeping with our emphasis onbeing a store of the community, Wal-Mart is converting thefabrics and crafts department in some stores to a newly expanded assortment of merchandise that focuses on life's celebrations. We are thrilled to offer our customers this exciting new crafts and celebrations center that makes available craft and partyplanning needs along with information on current trends and new ideas in the area of life's celebrations, such as holidays,weddings and birthdays.
In those stores where the new crafts and celebrations center isplaced, merchandise commonly referred to as 'notions' will beincluded in the product offerings - such as sewing machines, yarn, needles, thread, etc. As a part of this conversion, most of our new and remodeled stores opening in early 2007, as well as a small number of existing stores, will feature the newcrafts and celebrations center in place of cut fabrics. Wal-Mart will continue to carry cut fabric in most of our stores. Due to the continued evaluation of our stores, we are unable to share a list of existing stores scheduled to receivet he new crafts and celebrations center at this time.
