I looked at the size of the fabric/sewing machine/notions department in my local Wal-Mart. It was somewhat under 3000 sq. feet (56 x 40 tile squares). Has the size changed over the last year or so? Incidentally, 3 new Wal-Marts in our region, that I noticed, had RAGS shops next door (fabrics/crafts); however, RAGS wasn't doing well, last time I checked their financial reports.
