I got an email from my LYS, Knitting Central, this morning and it's changed my day entirely. They are closing their store! They've decided to just keep some products online.
What are we local knitters going to do? They have lovely products, great staff and they are one of the very few stores in the area. What am I going to do when I need another pair of Addi needles for a project? I will have to wait and order them online?
Now, most of you know I love to buy things on sale...in fact, I once told a woman I know that I never pay full price for clothing (she was shocked and I figured she must only pay full price). I hate missing a good sale but I feel like a vulture swooping down on the pickings when a store closes.
Since they are going to stay open online, I guess it really won't be totally vulture-like to go and see whats there...and I do need a set of size 5 Addis - 30% off is a lot better than full price.
Oh, this is just a bummer to have no LYS.
