Hobby Lobby Ribbon Cutting in Elizabethtown

Many local shoppers, crafters and moms are super excited that Hobby Lobby is opening up in Elizabethtown, Kentucky! Tip

Yes, Hobby Lobby is already open! We know :) But they are having a ribbon cutting on Monday, March 9th and often in business they’ll have a soft opening and then a more ‘Grand Official Opening’ as well.

Elizabethtown is going to be able to say they have bragging rights to have the 15th Hobby Lobby in the state of Kentucky in their town.  Not only is the store creating many jobs for locals in Hardin County Kentucky and the surrounding areas but those that love finding supplies locally without driving to Louisville are quite excited.

Jessica Spears, owner of Little Ladybug Crafts is really looking forward to hopping over to Hobby Lobby to find supplies for her latest creations between nap times! “When you have a new baby and you have a good solid 2 hours to get stuff done, going to a store that is just down the road is far more reasonable that jaunting up to Louisville.” says Spears.

Another local, Allyson Miller, finds that crafting for her business Daisy & Elm Jewelry and Rosaries is much easier when she has a local spot to run to for last minute needs. “With all the visual fun colors in Hobby Lobby, my sweet boy I think is going to love it too!” says Miller.

They will kick-off a fun festive event done by numerous local businesses…They’ll be having a ribbon cutting on Monday, March 9, 2015 at their location in Elizabethtown where many local businesses will be represented. The ribbon cutting is done by the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce that will also be present. That takes place right at 9am.

Hours: The Hobby Lobby hours for the Elizabethtown store are the same as all Hobby Lobby stores. They are open Monday – Saturday 9am- 8pm and they are closed every Sunday.

Location: Ring Road near North Dixie Avenue, Elizabethtown, Kentucky
