Not to be a total smarta$$, but pretty much every business will be closed that day in observance of the holiday. If they are going out of business as of Jan. 1st, 2010, then that's a different story.

This is very sad if it is true. I will admit that our store didn't have everything but.. they are much better than nothing!! I have seen improvements in it in the last year or so. I don't really want to have to drive to Dublin or Springfield just to go fabric/craft shopping. I do a lot of sewing and this will be bad!!! It's bad enough needing to go out of town for some things as it is.

Okay smarta$$ you got me! LOL! I worded my post wrong.
The employee told me the store is going out of business as of Jan. 1, 2010. I was given a # to call if I would like to express my disappointment in the corporate office's decision to do this. It is JoAnn's Customer support 1-888-739-4120 the store ID# is 681. I for one will miss that store!

I never really cared for JoAnns. They're supposed to be a fabrics and crafts store, but never had what I was looking for. They carry junk and are incredibly over priced. I'm honestly not surprised that they are going out of business. There are several nice JoAnn's Fabrics around, but the Bellefontaine store is not one of them.

Joanns is the only place to get our fabric needs.. The Kenton Walmart no longer has a fabric department and I only wonder how long it will take the Bellefontaine store to follow suit.. I dont buy much fabric.. but whe I do need a smidgen I like having the option to by local instead of driving 50 miles to buy half a yard.. and I love the fake flower selection at joanns.. yes some things are over priced.. but if you factor in the drive and gas to somewhere else when you just need a little I would much rather hit the Plaza..

Yes, Walmart has fabric but, have you noticed it is dwendling down? I figure our Walmart is doing away with fabric like many others(which is sad too). Even though our JoAnn's is smaller it still had more fabric than Walmart, actually if you think about it, they had a differnet selection which was nice also. I don't understand why you think JoAnn's is so expensive. I try to buy when things are on sale or with a coupon. I realize that doesn't always happen but it works most of the time.
I hope not

I stay out of the Chinese Mall, I don't like to write a check amd have them hand it back. Their fabric is less expensive, they have a good selection and the clerks in that area are great, help me find things I can't, and are always pleasant, but as far as the rest of the store, it sucks. Hate those long check out lanes.

It is sad about JoAnns of Bellefontaine closing at the end of this year. Fortunately the MagLev high-speed interurban train link to Columbus will open on January 10th, and the Springfield-Dayton line from Bellefontaine is scheduled to be finished on February 12th. Those transport spurs will prove a great help to LoCo shoppers.

Did you ever write a check at Wal-mart, they scan it and hand it back, instead of sending it to the bank. I hope I don't misplace it before I get home. I like to keep my canceled checks together. Chinese Mall= Everything is "made in China"
