Hobby Lobby is not owned by the Mormon church. It is a Protestant organization that promotes Jesus Christ as our Savior. They have full page features in our newspaper showing the birth of Christ and at Easter time his resurrection story. Beautiful artwork and so meaningful. Their stores are always well stocked and reasonable in pricing. The clearance racks are good buys and I think I will go to ours today and see what they have to offer in yarn sales.

for being a "Christian" store, they buy into the commercialism of Christmas by having Christmas items and d├ęcor in the stores in JULY. They by-pass the guilt by saying they have to do that for crafters....hmmm - fully decorated items???


That is not true. My SIL was a floral designer. She had to create bazaar items in the summer. Hobby Lobby is just catering to those crafters working on items for sale in Fall Christmas bazaars. If she had waited till September or October to begin making wreaths, swags and table pieces, she couldn't have created her stock.

Your anger towards Christmas crafting is evident. Are you sure it isn't Christmas itself that causes it?

Hobby Lobby and Chick-fil-a are both great places. Ii applaud them for standing up for God and our country.

It is my understanding that Hobby Lobby is not affiliated with a specific denomination but like the founder of Chic-Filet (sp?) the founder believes in the sanctity of life and family. Both owners believe closing on Sunday is keeping the"Sabbath Day" holy and allowing employees to have a day of rest with their families. Both have been under fire and need our financial support and prayers. Hope I am not violating a Forum rule -just think that the customer service of both organizations are examples that a lot of other chains could imitate. Just my thoughts...

I remember (back in the Ice Age) when New York State had "Blue Laws"(?) that didn't allow some stores to be open on Sundays. You also couldn't buy beer before Noon on Sundays. Amazingly, we all survived!!! LOL!!

Just my two cents' worth...who cares what "affiliations" Hobby Lobby has? They are entitled to believe (or not to believe) whatever they want. What matters is that they are a legitimate retail operation. I, for one, would love to work there.

Try Texas! In the '60's the State finally allowed drug stores to be open on Sunday, but they could only sell certain items, not everything they carried.

Since I go to Church on Sat., my Sabbath, I would like to have the opportunity to shop at HL on Sunday, but I think they are a great store to value their employees over profit, and give them the chance to be at home with their families. Now that I'm retired, I can shop whenever I want, but before, it was a little difficult. The chicken place is closed on Sunday, but they do have "staff meeting, and training" on Sunday, so I don't respect them as much as HL

And here's my two cents worth as well: I worked in a store that was owned by people who were Jewish. I never had any problem selling Jewish-themed items even though I'm Catholic. I was raised to respect all faiths and am grateful to see there are stores that do the same.

I have a question though...Why is it acceptable to bash Christians? When you read the snide comments about Christians, consider how you would feel if you inserted Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, liberal, progressive, or right/left wingers into the statements you see printed about Christians/Catholics? Not the same, is it?

Okay, time for me to get off the soap box.
