So, there is a new JoAnns in my area (it's 19 miles from my house. That's "in the area" where I live). I have not been to a JoAnns since I moved to North Carolina back in November because there just wasn't one near me. The nearest one was 80 miles away in Winston-Salem. So, imagine my excitment when I found out they were opening a new JAs in Moorsville, NC! I actually drove the 19 miles there before I even realized they were not open yet. And just so see that it was actually there, the drive wasn't a disappointment.
Then it happened. I was actually able to get the the store while it was open. I'm so disappointed! First, there is the usual amout of fleece in the store. When I lived in Michigan, I kind of understood the logic behind having so much fleece in the stores. But this is NC, it's been 80 every day since mid-Feburary. Now it's 90-100 and I doubt it's going to cool off until at least September. Guess what they didn't have? A single swimsuit print. Oh well, fabric.com here I come, I guess! Second, the store is tiny. Once there, I realized the store wasn't one of their etc... stores, it was just a small fabric and craft store. Which amazes me because this area is being built up so fast, that I can't imagine that the population can't support a superstore. Maybe they have a bigger store slated for closer to Charlotte? I can hope, right? lol
Oh well, I guess I can continue to hit the local Hancocks when I need notions, and then to continue to support my ever growing list of online retailors when I want a fabric fix.
