Sweet! We have a whole new staff to annoy when we complete the Hobby Lobby Challenge! Just kidding. Well, at least I am.

Lil Zim loves her some Hobby Lobby. She is one of those crafty chica's that makes stuff. Not my forte, but I would be happy to put some of HER stuff up in MY apartment lol.

According to WREX, "The 62,000 square-foot store will open at 1548 West Lane Road in the Gateway District Shopping Center. “Hobby Lobby is going to bring needed jobs to our community and I’m confident that residents will embrace this fantastic business,” said Mayor Johnson.

Now, of course, this exciting for all to do it yourselfer's. But, if you need a job, this will also be exciting for you.

WIFR reports that, "Village officials say approximately 35 to 50 full-time and part-time employees will be needed at the crafting and home decor store."

Keep your eyes peeled because it won't be long before you can get your shop on. The store is expected to open in July.
