Many Bozeman residents have been patiently waiting for Hobby Lobby to open for business in the old Hastings shopping center near the intersection of Main Street and N. 15th Avenue.

Earlier this year, the arts & crafts retailer was searching for employees for the new location. The store was originally slated to open in March but that date was pushed back due to unknown circumstances.

We reached out to Hobby Lobby for more information and were not given much detail regarding the delay.

We were informed that an opening date has not yet been determined and will not happen in 2019. The opening date has once again been delayed, and Hobby Lobby now plans to open the Bozeman location in 2020.

We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
