OKLAHOMA CITY – Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a privately held national retail chain of craft and home decor stores, is set to open a new store in Dawsonville, Georgia. Construction is underway on this new 55,000 square-‐foot building located at GA 400 and Dawson Forest Road.

“The success of our stores in Georgia is a good indicator that Dawsonville shoppers
will be pleased with the quality, selection and value we offer in the craft and home decor market,” stated John Schumacher, Assistant Vice President of Advertising. New customers and customers already familiar with the Hobby Lobby shopping experience are eagerly anticipating this store opening.”
