Super Yarn Mart

Years ago there used to be a company called super yarn mart that sold yarn very very reasonable. Then they disappeared and when I went on their website it said that they were in Menlo Park, Ca but I could never get any info. Then someone told me they were in New York and I couldn't find them there either. Has anyone heard of them or know where the company is and how I can get in touch with them?
I have been knitting for a lot of years and have never heard of that store or company.
I have some of their yarn in my stash, but I found it in thrift stores, etc. According to the labels, it was in Los Angeles, I think. I'd wake up my DH if I checked now!

Yes, I remember the store and used to shop there a lot. They had a huge variety of yarn including yarn from other countries. I do miss that store.
There is a store and mail order store in New York City called Smileys yarns. check it out at www.smileysyarns.com
Their yarn is very reasonable and they have many different kinds for sale.
Yes I used to shop at their store in Torrance, California. When I moved to Sacramento I learned they were down in the San Francisco area and a friend here told me that she had shopped there. We planned to go down there together on a shopping expedition, but just to make sure of the directions I searched on line and found it was no longer there. I really miss it. They had a tremendous variety of yarn and lots of free patterns in their files and would give them to you already printed. I still have some of them.
Thanx for all of the info friends and yes I have checked out Smileys but it is nothing like what Super Yarn Mart used to be!
Yes, I rermember the Super Yarn Mart. There was one on Lake Street in Pasadena, CA. We even had one in Whittier on the corner of Imperial and Valley View. That was the only place I bought yarn for years. Then they disappeared. If someone finds them, let us know.
Yes, I used to go to a Super Yarn Mart in Seattle, WA on Aurora Ave, they have been closed for many years. However, I still have a few bags that I kept yarn in.
I used to go to the Torrance store and also the one in Hawthorne, Ca.
I too remember going to a Super Yarn Mart, I lived in Burbank, CA and there was a store in North Hollywood, it was quite a large place and the yarn was very reasonable to buy. If you find out anything about them, please post us their location and how to get ahold of them.
Super Yarn Mart went out of business, at least in California, a long while ago, 20+ years. They were given a certain time to 're-tool' their disposing of the waste from their dying process. They closed rather than stop their poullting ways.
Have no idea if they have relocated any place.
Thanx for all of the input I'm glad that I wasn't the only one that misses Super Yarn Mart!

I worked in the SYM in San Diego for 15 years. Almost all of them are out of business. I assume "old" Mr Goldman has died and the grandsons are not interested in running the entire "empire." Or they couldn't survive the downturn in knitting years ago.
