We Finally have a Hobby Lobby on the west coast of FL!!! I've been driving 1.5 hours north to Ocala for 3+ years and now I've got one that's 10 minutes from home! They had their "soft" grand opening today, and of course I had to go check it out. Soooooooooo much better than Michael's and JoAnn's! They have their "official" grand opening on Monday morning at 9 AM, so I think I may have to go back and see if they are giving anything good away! I got some things today. New "B" plates for my Cricut that I've been having to order online and pay ungoldy shipping for. Some t!m stuff that I'd not been able to find anywhere else. Thanksgiving AND Christmas craft stuff is already at 40 and 50% off, so I got some things to put up for next year since I'm done with this year's crafts. One of the employees I was talking to say they are expanding their footprint in FL and have plans to go into Tampa next year when they find the right existing storefront that they can remodel. (This one's in an old closed down Winn Dixie store.) She said they will move further south into FL as they find the right places to fit their needs.
Now all I need is for Trader Joe's to move closer than Hotlanta!
