Hobby Lobby says new store to open mid-fall
WICHITA - Hobby Lobby Inc., the home-decor and craft-supply retailer, today confirmed that it’s building a new store at Regency Lakes shopping center in northeast Wichita.
The Oklahoma City-based company already operates two locations in Wichita, 665 N. Ridge Road and 2120 N. Woodlawn. The latter will close when the new store opens. The Woodlawn store’s employees will be relocated to the new store, company spokesman Vince Parker told me in an email.
The new 55,000-square-foot store — located between Cabela’s and World Market at the shopping center along Greenwich Road between 21st Street and K-96 — will open mid-fall, Parker said.
The company is not releasing development cost for the new building, Parker said.
Parker said Hobby Lobby was attracted to Regency Lakes for its location and tenant mix. Besides Cabela’s and World Market, tenants include SuperTarget, Kanza Bank and Chili’s.
