About Hobby Lobby
The very first Hobby Lobby opened in Oklahoma City in 1972. Company founder David Green had a background working in retail and wanted to create a store that would cater to hobby enthusiasts. Initially, Hobby Lobby focused entirely on arts and crafts, so they sold things like paint, yarn, faux greenery and beads. The concept proved to be very popular with Oklahoma residents, and Green opened seven stores throughout the first decade. Starting in the 1980s and 1990s, Hobby Lobby expanded outside of Oklahoma. They currently have 932 locations throughout the United States. Hobby Lobby is open every day besides Sunday, and they also sell items through their online store. Over the years, Hobby Lobby has significantly expanded its stock. In addition to selling arts and crafts supplies, they also home décor, home furnishings, party décor and baking supplies.
Most annual sales happen before the holidays, so customers can stock up on supplies for holiday crafts. Expect big sales around Easter, Christmas, Halloween and Valentine's Day. There are also hefty clearance sales right after holidays when the store needs to clear out holiday-themed décor.
