Construction is well under way, and the opening of Hobby Lobby in the former Joe’s building has been set for Friday, Oct. 28.
Crews were putting up exterior framing on the store today. The recent removal of the Joe’s facade revealed lettering from when the space housed Ernst.
Hobby Lobby touts itself as the “go-to location for families looking for everything from furniture and vases to arts and crafts supplies.” Departments include arts, crafts, hobbies, framing, jewelry, fashion fabrics, floral, cards and party, wearables, home accents, scrapbooking, needlework and seasonal.
The company also has plans for a store on Evergreen Way in Everett.
