It's actually happening! With rumor after rumor circulating about whether or not Hobby Lobby would actually open in Bozeman, the store has announced a May opening date.

According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, Hobby Lobby will open in mid-May and hire around 50 people for its Bozeman store, with full-time pay starting at over $15 an hour.

Hobby Lobby will be located in the old Hastings building on Main Street, which has gone through a major renovation over the past couple of years. Originally, they were expected to open last spring, and when that did not happen, many were skeptical if the company was really coming to Bozeman at all.

Now, it's official. Hobby Lobby is coming to Bozeman and we will pass along more information as it becomes available.
