World Market is leaving me

I've now known for three weeks that one of my favorite places to shop is closing it's doors....Cost Plus World Market.  Actually, thirty-six World Market stores across the U.S. are calling it quits.  Darn economy!  All three of the Omaha stores are leaving, so for me to shop at a World Market I'll have to travel to Kansas City or Des Moines, so I've been told.  Such a huge disappointment to hear when it's become one of my rituals of scrappin' at Archiver's.  My friend Amy and I have made it a tradition to buy a bunch of candy from around the world at this particular store and then go to our scrapfest and fill our faces with the sugary junk.  This is how I have endurance for a twelve hour crop!  I will so miss the gummies from China, the licorice from Australia and the chocolates from Germany.  Oh, and so many others that I just haven't even met!!  I guess on the bright side weight loss will be a lot more obtainable!

I love World Market too! Guess you'll just have to come to Denver...there's one 5 minutes from my house! ;-) (We also have an Archiver's here, but they're not across the street from each other...Village Pointe is great, huh?!)

I'm soooo sad about World Market closing. It's like Pier 1 with MUCH better prices and fun food.

Stupid economy
