Do the Target Stores in the US carry yarn?
Target will be taking over some of our Zellers stores on Vancouver Island, 3 of our best stores for yarn will be closing in the next 6 months for the Target overhaul.
I hope we don't loose our yarn sections.
Thanks ladies.

I have never seen yarn in a Target store in the US. I hope you don't lose your yarn sections.

Our Target here only carries clothes. :cry: :evil:
When they first opened up here (a year ago)
and I walked in to see what they were going to carry......
saw all the clothes and nothing else...
turned around and walked back out. Haven't been back since!

I live in Richmond, I buy a lot of yarn from Zeller's, I sure hope the store here stay's, I was reading down the page, they are saying, no yarn at Target. I notice even Walmart's yarn is declining.
What are we to do? I guess go now, and buy all we can, at least here I have a nice craft store in Steveston, it's quite expensive though.
Well we'll wait and see.

The regular Target stores here do not carry yarn or sewing supplies, fabric, etc.

They carry clothing items, shoes,some have food items, electronics, books, magazines, some auto stuff (but no oil change place or tire place), exercise and sports equipment, dishes, sheets, etc., pet food and supplies, makeup and fragrances and other toiletry items. They also usually have a pharmacy.

This is annoying. I dislike Target generally - never been there of course- but my first 18" doll was from Target. She was a gift from an American member at Crochetville who wanted a pattern for a hockey player :D

I have come to count on Zellers for my Bernat yarns as our WM does not carry the same types. Truth is that I would likely just count the mall as dead space if Zellers does go Target. It is too big for me and kills my back and feet anyway.

In a small city, you don't get a lot of options for yarn. :(

I have noticed over past year or so, Wallmarts yarn supply has gone down a lot, more crafts, less yarn. They bring in a lot of the discount stuff, and very rough to use. Not soft at all.
Whats a knitter to do?
