Hobby Lobby Coming to Uvalde – Summer 2018

Uvalde Plaza Shopping Center, the City of Uvalde, Uvalde County, and the Uvalde Area Development Foundation are pleased to announce that Hobby Lobby is coming to Uvalde. Plans are underway for a 50,000 square foot Hobby Lobby store located at Uvalde Plaza Shopping Center, 2340 E. Main Street, Uvalde, TX 77801. Uvalde is located 70 miles west of San Antonio, TX.

Construction will begin in October this year with a planned opening in June 2018.

“Hobby Lobby is constantly looking for new locations to serve our customers better, and we believe Uvalde Plaza is a great fit. Currently, there are 98 Hobby Lobby locations in Texas. With the excellent response those stores have received, we believe customers will be pleased with the quality, selection and value we offer in the craft and home decor market. We look forward to being a part of the community and helping our Uvalde customers live a creative life” states Bob Miller, Communications Coordinator for Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. based in Oklahoma City, OK.

As a family-owned arts and crafts leader, Hobby Lobby offers customers exceptional selection and value in the crafts and home décor market.

“We believe Hobby Lobby is an excellent addition to our tenant mix at Uvalde Plaza Shopping Center and a valuable addition to the Uvalde community, states Rob Holliday, partner in the shopping center and adjoining properties. “We’ve been investing in Uvalde for 30 years and Hobby Lobby is the largest retail deal I can recall since Walmart came to town. We’re excited about Hobby Lobby and the message it sends to others looking at Uvalde”.

Mayor Don McLaughlin is enthusiastic about the new addition to the community. “Hobby Lobby is a great store and an excellent company,” the mayor said. “We’re glad to have been able to work with Mr. Holliday to bring it here.” Bill Mitchell, county judge and chairman of the Uvalde Area Development Foundation echoed the sentiment. “Hobby Lobby will be a great addition to the community, and it will strengthen Uvalde’s position as a regional retail draw,” Judge Mitchell said.
