Bozeman residents have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new Hobby Lobby in the former Buttrey's Shopping Center (aka the old Hastings Shopping Center).

The company hasn't released an opening date yet but they are looking to hire a retail co-manager.  The position is currently posted on their company website here.

Hobby Lobby recently stated "the grand opening has not been determined yet, since the store is still under construction."  They also said they plan to hold a hiring event soon prior to opening.

Last year they anticipated the new Bozeman store opening in March but that date has come and gone.  However, the store looks close to opening and many locals are hoping for a spring date.
