Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., located in Oklahoma City, OK, started as an outgrowth of Greco Products, a miniature picture frames company founded in a garage by David Green in 1970. Hobby Lobby officially began operation on August 3, 1972 with a mere 300 square feet of retail space, and has been growing ever since.
From such humble beginnings and steady growth, Hobby Lobby is now considered a leader in the arts and crafts industry. Today, Hobby Lobby has 525 stores across the nation that average 55,000 square feet in size, and offers more than 65,000 crafting and home decor products in its stores.
Hobby Lobby operates from a single office, distribution and manufacturing complex in Oklahoma City. Our on-site manufacturing plant produces store fixtures, candles, scented products, art canvas, picture frames, and houses product packaging facilities.
The constant element throughout Hobby Lobby's growth is our loyal customers and our outstanding employees. The foundation of our business has been, and will continue to be strong values, and honoring the Lord in a manner consistent with Biblical principles. Hobby Lobby store hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and all Hobby Lobby stores are closed on Sunday.
Hobby Lobby is listed as a major Oklahoma City-based private corporation in Forbes and Fortune's List of Largest Private Companies. The company carries no long-term debt, and pledges to provide exceptional selection, value and service, which is why Hobby Lobby is THE place to shop with everyday Super Selections and Super Savings!
