Stores doing away with maternity clothes??

I have gone into soo many stores and they do not have a maternity section. I walked into JcPennys yesterday and they informed me they are doing away with their maternity section also. wth? I remember when every store you walked into there was a huge section. Now, I guess they think we dont need maternity clothes anymore.. grr. The only stores I have found that have maternity any more is, Motherhood and Kohls. Both stores have limited selection and I mean LIMITED. Where do you shop for your maternity clothes? I know online is a choice, but Im getting so big so fast I needed clothes days ago. Help! Lol. 

Thanks ladies.

Old Navy, Gap - large online selection. Some stores do carry a limited amount. JCP, Sears - some stores have a very small selection, slightly larger online. Macys carries Motherhood Maternity. Walmart had a small selection online. Target, in store and online, small offerings there. Kohl carries a selection by Destination Maternity. H&M had maternity, they don't offer online ordering in the states yet and have limited retail locations in the US. Destination Maternity online has Motherhood & A Pea in the Pod.
There are still several options available, unfortunately most are online now.

most of the stores here no longer carry them either! so annoying! I go to Ross and Target. There are a couple of boutiques here but they are pretty expensive, the only time I get anything from there is when my MIL randomly decides I need clothes then thats where she wants to get them lol.

I'm short so it's hard to find anything in stores so I normally order online.  The stores in my town that carries any is Target, Walmart, Old Navy, Sears, and Kohls.

I have bought ALL my clothes from THRIFT shops.. I have 15 pairs of jeans ranging from Small to Large, 15 Shirts ranging from small to large, 2 dresses and I have only spent 50 to 60 bucks.. I have also gotten some great name brands and some VERY cute stuff... IMO Thrift shops are the way to go!!!

Yep, I had a terrible time finding maternity clothes when I was pregnant.  Wal Mart stopped selling them in our area, as did K-Mart.  Target had some things, but never anything in my size.  They were always too big, too short...not my style.  The one place I did find some things was Goodwill.  Strange I know!!  But I found a super cute summer skirt, 4 t shirts, 1 pair of PJ pants, 1 long shirt, 2 dresses, 2 pairs of shorts, and 2 pairs of blue jeans...all in VERY good shape for $50.  Less than I would have paid for one pair of maternity pants at Motherhood.  :)  I only wore them for like 3 months too.  I stayed pretty small this pregnancy (odd considering she was #4)

My Meijer has stopped too! Motherhood can be soooo expensive too. My JCPenny still has some for now thankfully and so does the Sears by my house. I am about to need clothes too.
