It's official: Hobby Lobby is coming to Ammon

We had a story nearly two weeks ago suggesting it was virtually certain that Hobby Lobby would be coming to the Sandcreek Commons development at Hitt and Sunnyside Roads.

This appeared in the BizMojo inbox this morning at 11:41.

Idaho Falls, ID - Ball Ventures and Woodbury Corporation today announce the coming of Hobby Lobby to the Idaho Falls area. The planned location for the new craft and home décor retailer is Sandcreek Commons, located at the corner of Hitt Road and Sunnyside Road in Ammon. Hobby Lobby will occupy a 55,000 square foot building and plans to open in the third quarter of next year. Cabela’s previously announced plans to locate in Sandcreek Commons.

 Hobby Lobby is an Oklahoma City-based company founded in 1972. The Ammon location will be one of over 600 stores owned by the privately held national retail chain. Hobby Lobby’s first Idaho location opened in Meridian in 2010. A second location is set to open in Nampa on September 22, 2014. The Ammon location is expected to bring roughly 35 to 50 jobs to the community, paying $15 per hour for full time positions and $10 per hour for part-time associates.

Ball Ventures, an Idaho Falls based real estate development company, is pleased to speak on behalf of both development companies regarding the newest major national retail tenant coming to the east Idaho region. “We are pleased Hobby selected Sandcreek Commons as the location for their new store. They are very popular with shoppers in this region and we anticipate the store will enjoy great success at this particular location,” says Eric Isom, Ball Ventures’ Chief Development Officer.


  1. Well, as a self-respecting woman I for one will not be patronizing their store.

    1. So you are dependent upon the government to provide your birth control? What's next? Should the government mandate that I be provided with 6 pack of beer every day too?

  2. 1 more for my "ain't going to shop there" list.

  3. Good, the more for the rest of us who have a little common sense and respect for a company's freedom to make decisions without the government's over-bearing intrusion and mandate. Do what you may, but your snooty, better-than-thou attitudes are not very impressive.

  4. Welcome to a wonderful part of the country Hobby Lobby!!!
