It was inevitable - World Market caved in and decided to give up their lease to Walmart. The liquidation has started on everything in the store from 5% on alcohol to 30% on toys and furniture. Shop now the large selections of hard-to find items like curry ketchup from Holland, hand woven sisal bathmats from Thailand and Ecuadorian-made biodegradable wine glass charms. The last day of business could be as soon as May 30th or as late as June 17 depending how fast merchandise continues to sell.
