This is great news, fight, rage against the machine. (not advertising the band)
Wal mart is about the worst thing that has happened to small business across the American landscape.

I've been signing every petition that comes across my face for this. The 6 heirs of Wal-Mart have more wealth than 42% of combined Americans. Just 6 people. Yet they can't pay living wages, they can't hire full time employees as that would require them to offer health insurance, they use people here and they use people overseas for cheap labor.

The woman who works in the Fabric Store of Wal-Mart said, they cut her area into a smaller section as it isn't so profitable, however she said, there use to be two fabrics stores in our Community now there is none because of Wal-Mart. When Wal-Mart first moved in, it had a large section of fabric and kept prices so low it drove out the two fabric stores in town. Now there is no place to buy fabric, hence why I'm in Wal-Mart, and now the section is so tiny it is limiting what one can find. I suppose they don't want you making things to save a few dollars buy their more profitable items that are cheaply made.
