The fabric department was ripped out of many stores in AR, MO and OK I believe. It was not ripped out of all Walmarts, but as a test to see if it would be noticed. (The thought was the fabric department takes up too much space.) I know for a fact that store #100 (AR) had no fabric department for about 6 months. After tons of complaints, it was brought back, but its footprint is a lot smaller.

I know for a fact that the door greeters are being phased out. Have a friend a corporate HR that was involved in the phase out process. There are still door greeters today, but as they leave, they will not be replaced. In many stores, they have been moved away from the entrances to well inside the store. In a couple of years, there will be no door greeters at all.

My husband tells me that the local WM still has guns and ammo.

Our greeters are still right at the door, in and out. One colorful old guy occasionally will be found in the entry area and on really nice days, right outside the front door.

Interesting that your store brought back fabric. Our fabric Center is still exactly the same size. There is no other fabric/notion option locally. I wish ours would bring back the Vision Center.

The merchandise selection at our store is horrible, IMO. Much nicer in all departments at both the stores in the nearest city. I think we get the clearance from other stores.
