Hobby Lobby, a rapidly growing chain of arts and craft stores, will open a new store in the former Miller Hill Kmart around Jan. 1.

this is good news for the retail industry. If they were.looking for a place for a long time how come they didn’t take the old Gander Mtn.? Either way its good.to see another mothballed blg going to good use.

I agree- if they have been looking for a Duluth location for 10 years- there have been plenty of big box type stores that at one time were empty-

I am glad they chose the former Kmart site… remember how well Michael’s did when they were where Savers is now? Welcome to Duluth… do well and prosper.

This is good news for those looking for work, sadly the jobs are only minumum wage, but highschool/colege students need work too! The other sad part is most of their retail ggods are made ‘off-shore’. We just can’t win!

Hobby Lobby is better than most retail when it comes to how they treat their employees.
The company announced in April that wages for part-time employees would be raised to $9.00 per hour and for full-time employees to $13.00 per hour.
Also, all stores are closed on Sundays.
I really look forward to having this. I went to Michael’s recently and couldn’t believe the prices! Some competition will definitely benefit consumers.
My next request would be an Old Time Pottery… but I’m sure that’s not happening anytime soon.

This is good news ! We were in Arizona a few weeks ago and I stopped at a Hobby Lobby there to look for some supplies I needed and couldn’t find around town here….and they had a lot of things I had never seen around here.
Welcome to town and I hope you prosper !
