A ribbon cutting ceremony and official grand opening celebration is planned 9 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 30, at the 58,000-square-foot building in Oregon City formerly occupied by Kmart, which will be a new store for Hobby Lobby, a privately held national chain of craft and home-decor stores.
Kmart closed its doors in January 2015 at 19003 Beavercreek Road in the Berry Hill Shopping Center on Highway 213. Projected to open in late September, the site will become Hobby Lobby's seventh location in Oregon offering more than 70,000 products, including floral, fabric, needle art, custom framing, baskets, home accents, wearable art, scrapbooking, jewelry-making and paper-crafting supplies.
"Once you visit Hobby Lobby, you will see that we are very unique, offering the widest variety of merchandise in the craft and home-decor market under one roof," said Kelly Black, Hobby Lobby's advertising director. "We're tremendously excited about becoming a part of the Oregon City community."
Store hours will be from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For more information, visit hobbylobby.com, download the mobile app or follow at facebook.com/hobbylobby.
