“We are really excited to become part of the community,” according to the Vince Parker of Hobby Lobby, who confirmed the lease agreement.
The store expects to open its doors sometime after the first of the year, Parker said.
Hobby Lobby has more than 550 stores nationwide, averaging 55,000 square feet and offering more than 67,000 crafting and home-decor products.
The news of Hobby Lobby’s plans recently came up as part of another Patch story.
Patch also asked in June 2012 what people would like to see occupy the former Sportsman’s Warehouse space, which has been vacant since 2009. There were 28 comments on the post.
