Hobby Lobby Expands Size of Two Area Stores


Harvey, Betty Jane, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. has outgrown its typical size store of 25,000 square feet and is gradually increasing the size of each of its stores to between 35,000 and 50,000 square feet.

The Midwest City store at 1400 Gateway Plaza is being increased by 15,000 square feet to 40,000 square feet. Gateway Partners of Oklahoma City is the general contractor on the $450,000 project.

Every department will expand, and there will be wider aisles, said David Green, president of Hobby Lobby. The Midwest City unit is a high volume store, he said.

The first phase of the headquarters is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 1995, Green said. It takes a while for the bid phase and completion of financial packages to fund the project, he said. Estimated cost on the first phase is $10 million.

Right now, the company is occupying three separate warehouses with a total of 280,000 square feet. Two of the buildings are near the headquarters on SW 36th St., but the third is at Reno and Meridian avenues. …
