Talking HOBBY LOBBY in California

OMG.. I just received an email from Hobby Lobby announcing "California Here We Come..Coming soon to Visalia!" No details yet..hopefully VERY SOON!

Yippeee.. it will be a 45 min. to 1hour drive for me but well worth checking out!
I'm so excited & I just can't hide it.... a new crafty store!

Wow! Visalia is only about 80 minutes from me, too! Vina82, do you live south or north of Visalia? That's my home stomping grounds and I'm always looking for an excuse to head up there!

HOW EXCITING! I'm always reading such great things about HL, but have never seen one. Bako isn't very far away....maybe they'll come here soon, too!

Thanks so much for the 'heads up'! Please let us know as soon as you hear anything further....

Blessings,
Kat

I just checked on their website, and they show the closest HL to Bako is in Henderson, NV! Can't wait to hear more about a Visalia store!!!

Another vote for So Cal. Hobby Lobby bought property in So Cal for my previous church to use as a retreat facility. Maybe they'll want more of a presence in So Cal and will open a store. I can hope.

Welcome, malathiguide! Do you live in an area with a Hobby Lobby? I don't, so I'm really happy to hear they may be coming to a town not far from me.....

Blessings,
Kat

Does HL really play religious music in the store? After hearing that they do, I was no longer interested in them coming to CA.

OMGosh!!!

My twin and I would totally love an HL in Southern Cali! I would schlep from San Diego as long as it was a reasonable distance.

We went to an HL in Michigan 4 years ago and totally loved it!!

But real estate is so darn expensive in San Diego

Can't wait to see what happens......

Yes..they do play religious music...it is very inspiring to have a company like this coming to town...I love to shop there. I usually get to shop at only when I go visit my son at Pensacola Christian College in FL, visiting family in Illinois or when I visit my sweet Sis in Texas..cant wait for next Saturday!
blessings.

Having never been to a HL, I didn't know this; but I doubt that it's really disruptive. Usually the volume is so low that unless you're familiar with those songs, you don't even realize it. Another local store plays Christian music and I rather enjoy supporting them. If it's a problem, there's always Michael's and Joanne's! =)

Blessings,
Kat

Awww..I wish! Thanks for the invite! Please share a review of your HL store opening after your visit! I wonder how different it is compared to Michaels.

Hugs

Disruptive is a relative term when it comes to personal preference.
