I just went through this at the local JoAnn's. I received 2 sewing machines and needed a few supplies. I knew I could get most of the items much cheaper online. However, remembering when my mom always went to the store and got supplies and questions answered, I thought I would buy the customer service to make sure I was buying the correct items. Not a good experience-no real help AND listening to employees plotting mutiny. Anyway, after I got home and thought about everything that transpired, I decided just how much I could save online and if should I take any of the items back.
Well, some of it was actually cheaper, which surprised me! Of course, I kept those items. However, the sewing supplies I returned-I was refunded $60.xx and bought the same stuff online for $30+ cheaper and actually, getting MORE items for the price. Ex: exact set of sewing machine needles $14.99 + tax/store and $4.99 flat, online. $3.49 for 2 pcs. of tailor's chalk/store and $1.46 flat for 4 different colors of chalk. Rotary cutter $13.49/store, $13.50 + 3 extra blades/online, and so on.
The only thing I didn't replace yet, is 2.25 yds. fabric, that was $29.xx ($12.99/yd) at the store and I can get the same item from $3.49/yd - $5.99/yd, online. That can wait.
