View Full Version : Hancock Fabrics Going Out Of Business!

Ok, some are... in my area two of the Hancock Fabric stores are going out of business. Hancock is shutting down over 140 stores with possibly more to follow.

Right now fabric is 80% off with very limited good fabric left. What I found out though is at the 10 day mark, Hancock managers are told to DESTROY patterns that are not sold!

Unfortunately for me, the 10 day mark passed seven days ago and all patterns were destroyed. The manager told me had I come in the week before she would have sold me the 1000+ remaining patterns for $10! :( So if your local Hancock store is shutting down and hasn't seen the 10 day mark yet, talk to the manager about getting your hands on patterns because frankly even if you only use a few and sell the rest, you can probably end up with a very good deal.

I know! All the ones in Columbus are gone now I think, and just as I'm moving back there too!

The one by my parent's house in Cincy is staying open though....figures.
