Walmart to Stock Fabric Again

Walmart U.S. said it will broaden its assortment by some 8,500 skus, reintroducing some items it had cut during an earlier bout of editing - including fabrics.
     In 2009, Walmart began eliminating fabric departments in many stores as part of its upscaling remodel to lure higher-income shoppers out of food and commodities into its general merchandise departments.
     Restored products - many of them regional food favorites - will carry "It's Back" flags.
     Walmart also will step up its price match policy and launched a national TV advertising campaign to support it.
