IF Hobby Lobby is your thing, save Aug. 31.
That's when the second of Spokane's Hobby Lobby Stores opens its doors, starting at 9 a.m.
The first was in Spokane Valley near the mall. This one is at the corner of North Division and East Lincoln Road. It's taking over a 66,000 square foot building once used by Hastings and later by Liquidation World.
The store's “official” grand opening will be the following Monday. Both events are open to the public.
We like that the friendly corporate Lobby folks even told us, in a release, that Scarlet Suitter is the store manager of the 65,900 square-foot retail facility.
This is the Oklahoma City-based group's fifth Washington store.
Notable tidbit: Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. started as an outgrowth of Greco Products, a miniature picture frames company founded in a garage.
A big deal for the crafters in the area, Hobby Lobby has announced it's opening a north Spokane location later this year.
This will be the national craft retailer's second Spokane area location.
It's taking part of the former Hastings store at 7706 N. Division St. It’s spending about $750,000 to convert the building, said Scott Nelson, Hobby Lobby’s assistant vice president of real estate.
We’ve just mentioned the imminent opening of mega-hobby store, Hobby Lobby, in Spokane Valley this summer. Those interested in applying for work can line up on Monday, July 19, at the store location, 13902 E. Indiana.
A company spokesman said this store will hire between 30 and 50 workers. Jobs will be both full- and part-time.
Yo crafters and hobby types. News of major proportion just in: Mega hobby and craft center chain, Hobby Lobby, will move into the empty G.I. Joe’s store in Spokane Valley. It’s expecting to open the new store in August.
The new Spokane Valley store will be at 13902 E. Indiana, and take up 45,000 square feet of floor space. The Oklahama City-based chain has more than 450 stores across the country; the nearest one so far has been in Boise.
This is a very large chain. Vincent Palmer, a company director of customer services, said it’s sort of fair to say Hobby Lobby is the “supersized” version of Michaels, another known chain of crafts stores. The big difference, he said, is that Hobby Lobby has more home-focused items, such as fabrics, picture frames and decorating accessories.
It also has operations in China, Hong Kong and the Phillipines.
