It may be just me - but letting folks in before the official opening date - I just think that is SO COOL.

I think in retail that they call this unofficial opening a soft opening -- it gives the clerks and management an opportunity to do their jobs without the crush and stress of shoppers that will be there on opening day. I am SO jealous that I wasn't there today....maybe I'll be able to sneak in and check things out on Saturday.

I went into the Hobby Lobby today and it was awesome!!! I first read about it here since I'm not usually in Meredian - I was over there and saw the packing lot was packed - so I figured I'd take a quick look - lol! I felt like a kid in a candy store! They had Spellbinders - it was so great to able to buy one in person. I talked to one of the clerks and she said they'll be extra promotions on Monday so we'll see. There went my craft budget! But just like someone warned of the first page - pay attention to the sale itmes - I show the flyer to get the discount on The Spellbinders. But maybe I was unlucky. I'm so excited!!!!! What a fun store!!!

I was there today as well and how nice it was to see almost everything in the store on sale for 30 to 50% off, at least until Saturday. I have loved HoLo stores for over 30 years and while they had lots of stuff on sale today, rest assured they have sales going on all the time. We had moved away from the midwest in the early 90's to the Pacific NW and how sad it was to find they had no stores there. I had to get my "fix" upon visits back to OK, KS and TX. Now, they're only 10 minutes from me in Meridian. Hallelujah!!! They were quite busy today and if you go, have patience with the new store employees. They didn't seem to know yet where things were located, but they sure found what I wanted. I guess it's a new store for them too.
To all who read these posts, support our newest Hobby Lobby! Enjoy.
