I have had NOTHING but issues with the Hobby Lobby store here in Shreveport, La, and the store Manager Marie Bailey is the WORST!! She will ARGUE with a customer, no matter what the customers concern is!!! I’ve dealt with her TWICE and both times she’s argumentative and does NOTHING to help or solve the problem!! I am totally DONE shopping at Hobby lobby or this specific location!! I LOVE most of the fabrics quality, BUT NOT WORTH the hassle and absolute disrespect from this staff and MAINLY the store manager!! I will spend MORE MONEY elsewhere to get better customer care!!

On June 2 2017 I went into the Hobby Lobby location @114 Pavillion Parkway, Fayettevile,Ga. My purpose was to purchase flowers for my mother’s grave. I was accompanied by my sister and her 10 year old daughter as wells as my 3 kids ages 2,3, and 10. Both of the 10 year old are girls. They asked to use the restroom .So we allowed them to use the restroom and we continued to shop. The girls returned from the restroom and we continued to shop for an additional 30 minutes or so. We were approached by the store manager who asked if she could place some of our larger items at the register while we continued to shop and she even advised us that there was a 66 percent off isle and directed us there. Shortly after we approached the check out. The manager came over again because one of my items was damaged. By the end of my transaction I had spend about $160 which I paid In CASH . My sister spent and additional $60. I have been a Hobby Lobby customer for 10+ years spending 10 of thousands of dollars there however it was my sister’s very first visit. We left the store and continued to shop in the Pavillion for at least an additional 2 hours. During this time the girls made another trip to the restroom which the closest location was at the Hobby Lobby. Later on that evening I received a call from a lady saying she was with Fayetteville Police asking was i at the Pavillion. The call came from a cell phone so my very 1st question was how did tou get my name and number which the officer refused to disclosed. However the person stated that the girls had played in glitter, glue and paint in the Hobby Lobby and had damaged 6 isles at the Hobby Lobby. She said that they were on video. She also demanded that I return to the store immediately. She demanded that I pay for the damages. I Advised that I would like to see that video and if the girls had done anything I would accept responsibility. However I also asked if there was an issue why wasn’t we stopped before we left the store. Why was the police called. The police also stated that the store manager said that the girls entered the store alone and was never accompanied by adults. So overall the manager intentions were for me to be arrested for something I had no knowledge of and as of today has yet to see the video of even after I requested to see it. However the officer demanded that I pay money or she would arrest me. Now the mystery of how did they get my information was solved immediately after I listened to the phone call over. The officer received the complaint from the Hobby Lobby manager , although we had left the store already the manager at hobby lobby continued to watch us!!!!! WHY ???? We didn’t steal anything , we paid in cash. We were profiled because of our RACE! At this point I can’t say if the girls made the mess or not because I didn’t see the video even after I asked. However I have always stated that i would accept responsibility if they did. The manager was able to tell the police which stores i went into after I left Hobby Lobby so this means if the mess was noticed after I left the store, she still knew where I was but she never said anything to me she called the police and tried to get me arrested. I’m am very disappointed how this incident was handled and more so how I was watched and profiled. Hobby Lobby in Fayetteville Ga has an issue with racial profiling.Race should never be an issue..All money is green! After this incident I will respectfully discontinue to patronize all Hobby Lobby stores. Also I will share my experience with all of my friends and clients who just so happens to be parents or friends of parents to.. I don’t wish this experience on anyone.

I worked at Hobby Lobby this past Christmas season. Nov 2016 thru Jan 2017. I have always loved to shop at Hobby Lobby and I was looking forward to working there.Its a christian company, Sundays off, I assumed people would be pleasant. WRONG.
I was asked to do tasks far beyond my physical limits with absolutely no thought from the management that I may be injured.I am 59 yrs old. I was in fact injured and now have numbness of one of my fingers from the constant heavy lifting as well as a permanent shoulder injury as a result of lifting 50 lb boxes up an 8 foot ladder and reaching over my head day after day. I also had and incident after I told management that my shoulder was injured and could they please give me the lighter loads to move on truck day and I was told ” everything is heavy its truck day”. We where told to go faster by other employees and basically treated like crap. Both managers where rude and never smiled even with customers. Myself and other part time employees worked 9-13 hr. shifts with only one 30 min break this happened often. One evening before inventory we where informed after we got there and expected we would be working as per the schedule until 10 pm, that we would be there until 2 or 3 am because this stuff HAD TO GET DONE!!!! Also one morning of inventory I woke up with a very bad headache and called in and was about 2 hrs late. I was then told that unless I was in the hospital I had to be in work. First of all I’m sure that’s also against the law! I was told that I they where going to keep me and a coworker after the Christmas season. Both of us where simply dropped off the schedule with no explanation and no notice from ANYONE. I have owned and operated many businesses and I have also worked other retail jobs in my life and I have never been treated so badly. There was NEVER a kind word or a” hey great job” NOTHING!
If I am asked I would tell anyone considering working for any Hobby Lobby to run!!!
I have family and friends who now wont go into that store because of how I was treated.
Someone should check this out. There is more to running a successful business than the almighty dollar.

My fiance and I have been shopping at hobby lobby for a while since it was built here in statesville nc and never had an issue with them until today. We enter the place and I notice the cashier staring at me pretty intensely. I look back and notice that he’s got on the store phone and is still staring as we are walking to the back of the store to where my fiance is headed. She loves shopping and could stay in hobby lobby for hours if she could, and sometimes she does planning things out and what not. We are getting our first place together so she likes planning things out etc. So she is shopping and I’m noticing that there are employees walking by the isles that we are in and then by the cart glancing in it. Somethings up. I tell her Jenny, these people think we are stealing stuff. She says yea right. So I notice they are still doing so. We eventually go to the front to cash out and notice there is a police officer at the front doors staring at us as we are cashing out. Knew right away what was going on but still couldn’t believe it. My fiance finally realized I was right. Officer walks over and demands to see ID. I ask what the problem is and the officer rudely states that they have video of us stealing. I say to the officer bs, there is no way because we would not EVER do such a thing. So I ask the officer, you mean to tell me that you have video proof of her stealing. .ie putting things in her bag or pocket? Then it devolved to well no, they have video of her putting things in her cart and then eventually placing them in other areas of the store when she decided not to buy them. I said, we’ll how is that stealing then? The manager then interjects and says well she puts back a lot of things and they couldn’t account for all of it. So it further devolved into well. .we don’t have proof but all we need is suspicion. Now let me get this straight, you don’t have any proof of theft. I told the officer you could have checked her any time and you would have found nothing because she doesn’t steal. She enjoys the act of shopping and putting things together, especially for our new place but she usually only ends up buying a few things. Yes, pain in the butt but nowhere does that constitute stealing or making a big scene in front of the store with police and management saying they have video proof of her stealing. Mind you in front of a line of customers making us look like thieves. They basically told us we were banned not for proof because they had none. .but all they needed was suspicion. I told the officer that I don’t even care about the store and wouldn’t shop there again if it was offered. .but, the fact that you made my fiance feel like a criminal and cry in front of a line of customers. We have a problem. I’m trying to contact corprate and thought I’d leave this here. I’m Christian. .this was not very Christian like of is corporation in my opinion.

On Saturday, March 4th, my friends and I went to your Harlingen TX store. We needed to pick up some school supplies for a project. We found everything we needed, on our own and headed to the front to pay. When we arrived at the front, we found 14 people in line in front of us with 1 checkout stand open. The manager and two other employees were standing very close and talking, not paying attention to the customers. As I approached and asked if they could get some other employees to help or if they could stop talking and open some checkout stands, I was told yes, but was also told they were talking about a customer, which I guess was intended to justify them ignoring the customers who were ready to pay and help them maintain their jobs. I approached the manager, who summoned 4 people from the back to get the customers taken care of, but the attitude of “Gloria” the manager, was not what I’m accustomed to at Hobby Lobby. I was disappointed and so were the many customers who witnessed my exchange and thanked me for asking for help, not just for one but all of us. I ask that you “Remember Me” your customer and get Gloria some training please. I want to maintain a customer but will not if we get the same treatment next time. Take a clue from the Chic-Fila-a across the street who does a great job.

Angry Mom February 7, 2017 at 2:49 pm

My daughter works for Hobby Lobby and what should be a fun teenage time is a miserable experience for her. The managers don’t seem to care about the welfare of their employees. It’s sad when a parent has to call up and plead that their child be let off early due to being in severe pain and crying after she asked herself if she could just leave at close, technically not even “early” just at close. The response/attitude she received wasn’t very “Christian like” to say the least. And then said manager decided to ride the mean wave and yell at her for having her mom call up and “yell” at them. I didn’t yell that time, but you can bet I will the next time. This type of management is unacceptable and no one should wonder about turnover. At my request, she is looking for new employment because this part-time job is not worth the stress she is going through. Shame on you Hobby Lobby for not screening your managers better. Hire someone who cares about someone other than themselves.

I worked at a hobby lobby in Houston,Texas. In all my years of working retail, I have never had to work 17 hour days, I did this 3 to 4 times a week, and Saturdays as a manager you are have no relief for your lunches, which put you in the store for 15 hours with no break. Not to mention that assoicates are kept passed there scheduled time, begging to go home, management answers are you have to stay to get it done.Sometimes we would be in the store until 12am, it makes no sense doing relays and your truck during business hours this hurts customer service and your associates this hinders their ability to get their job done. The fact there no technology for your assoicates I have watched them struggle to get there job done and help customers.Christian store I don’t think so, I didn’t see my family during the holidays and Sunday church let’s see you work 15 16 17 hours on a Saturday and be able to get up and go to church on sunday.

I was driving by the Rancho Cucamonga, CA store when an 89 year old man, who was exiting Hobby Lobby, missed the curb and fell into the street in the shopping center. Blood was pouring from his face wound. As I called 911, we also had someone ask Hobby Lobby for help. The manager, Laura, and a few other employees were quick to respond by bringing a wheelchair, ice pack, etc. They also helped us call for emergency help. The manager responded to the situation with great composure and represented Hobby Lobby well. It was a great example of loving your neighbor!

Concerned loyal customer December 14, 2016 at 9:51 pm

Over the years I have spent thousands of dollars at Hobby Lobby. I love the vision and values of your company. However my experience at your Grove City, OH store on Wednesday, December 14 at or around 7:40 was horrible. My husband and I along with our 2 year grandchildren were in line to checkout. There was only 1 registersopen and the line was extremely long. We noticed 5 employees standing at the beginning of the registers. I asked “Are there any other register opened”? No one responded immediately. A few seconds later one lady which I later learned her name was LOIS. She walked toward the registers on the other side of the front door. She never offered to take any one of the customers waiting in line so I assume she was not going to open her register.

One of the other two cashiers asked her if she would open and she said (paraphrasing) I am but no one is coming over. We walked over to her and explained that we did not realize she had opened her line/register. I apologized for make her do her open but the line was long and it is very frustrated to customers, especially this time a year, to see only 2 registers open and other employees talking to each other.

She proceed to tell me they were talking to the store manager. I said that actually makes it worse knowing the manager was a witness to the line and she proceed to let the line grow longer with no reaction. Lois then continue to tell me they had a store issue. I do understand and can appreciate the need to speak with employees at any given time during the day. However, I am sure there is a better place to conduct a “Meeting” than in the front of the store where there are frustrated customers.

Lois continued to ring out my purchases. I had my cell phone opened and ready for her to use the 40% coupon and she completely ignored me until was ready to accept payment. I had to remind her that I had a coupon. She then, very rudely I may add, discounted my purchase. I mentioned to my husband that maybe we should have waited until 7:55 to checkout so we would not have had to wait in line. Lois said yes you probably should have because we have as many registers open as possible so we can get out of here.

I finished my transaction and she said again very rude and sarcastic “Well have a nice Christmas”

When I was walking out the door I noticed my receipt was wrong. I had purchased a pattern and it was rang at full price. I went back into the store and to Lois’s register. No I did not stand back in line (Due to the length and the fact it was not my error) as I walked back to Lois at the register, I heard her tell the customer she was waiting on about our altercation. VERY, VERY bad customer service…. I did interrupt her with her customer when I said “You charged me wrong for the pattern’ I should have waited until she finished with the customer but again, I did not want to wait. She picked up the sales ad and studied to see if it was actually on sale. I reminded her that it is an everyday discount of 40%. She told me to go to register 3 or 4 for a refund. So now I am waiting in line again….

I am waiting in line and a cashier with long straight strawberry blonde hair, I did not catch her name due to the fact her back was to me, yelled a crossed the registers and said “Lois, did that lady yell at you” Funny thing was she did not realize I was standing right behind her. If Lois replied, I did not hear her. However, the customer she was waiting on was very happy to say and point to me that she is still right there and yes she did. One I never raised my voice, cursed at her or drew attention to our conversation. Two, I never asked to speak to the manager I was just going to chalk it up to a bad experience. But when a customer starts yelling at me and telling me I am a bad person and everyone at the registers are looking at me, it was as very embarrassing situation for me.

I told the customer who pointed me out that it was not her business and that she did not see how rude Lois was to me when I first checked out. Regardless I received my refund with no problem and the cashier was very polite. I sure she was as uncomfortable as I was at that point.

I will continue to shop at Hobby Lobby and I will return to the store in Grove City. However, I would expect disciplinary action for Lois and maybe a course in customer service.

Concern Shopper December 7, 2016 at 1:19 pm

David and Barbara Green, I have a serious complaint about two managers in the Lake Charles, La. store, Darlene and Veronica. I have shopped in the store on different occasions and each time I’m there I witness them talking to the cashier and floor employees as if they are worthless. It is unprofessional, unnecessary and ungodly for Darlene and Veronica to speak to them that way. My understanding is Hobby Lobby is a Christian owned store, but you have two devils destroying the environment. They don’t have God’s Love in their heart if they have no care for their employees. They have no knowledge or skills of being a manager. You need to take care of this situation immediately before you lose all your customers and employees for the ignorance of unknowlegable managers that think only their jobs are secured. The management of this store is giving you a bad name in the community. On the other hand, your cashiers and floor workers have the greatest personalities. BAD MANAGERS

Hobby Lobby Manager in Colorado Springs physically assaulted a customer. Accused him of shoplifting had no proof. Cops were called and young man was released but video caught the manager physically dragging this kid across the floor to the back. Another manager named Scott tried to order us out of the store without cause because we were video taping this very apparent physical assault on a customer accused of doing something that he didn’t do. This is supposed to be a Christian store but apparently they hire people that cant be trusted in a position of management. Unless these managers are fired we will never go back into this store again. ALL OF THIS WAS CAUGHT ON VIDEO.

The kid was asked to leave the establishment. In the same way a business can refuse to serve anyone, it is their right to ask someone to leave. In the same way that you would remove someone who was standing in your living room behaving inappropriately, you would do the same in your store. Furthermore, the video didn’t even get the beginning of what occurred, so you really have no justice to say the kid was not wrong. Either way, the kid was asked to leave and he didn’t.

Hobby lobby in Port Arthur, Texas has some of the rudest managers I’ve ever had to deal with. My friend rented a candlelabra from them for a wedding, when it was returned they asked for the original recipe/paperwork. I was unaware of such paperwork and that it needed to be present for deposit to be refunded. I asked my friend if she had the papers they were asking for bacause I was told “they didn’t have a copy”. I bet if the candelabra was never returned to them that they’d have the paperwork to refer to. They were very unprofessional and the store manager was rude. The bride was unable find the requested paperwork, so they’re going to keep the deposit. We will never rent from any hobby lobby ever again.

I have been a frequent shopper at the Baytown Texas Hobby Lobby for years. As an event decorator , I shop here at least once a week. My complaint is about how filthy the women’s bathroom is. I have said something to the Checkers more than once, and they always agree and tell me the manager cleans the bathroom. It seriously needs updating!! The locks on the stalls don’t work and have been like this for years. I can tell Hobby Lobby takes pride in their stores, so I would think this would be an important issue as well. I know I’m not alone in thinking this.
Thank you!

Dear Admin…I’m know I’m not the only fan of Hobby Lobby , and you get request of many people to open in their area. Our area has grow tremendously over the last years and we don’t have any significant hobby stores in our location. We travel to a neighboring town, …for those who have crafting businesses and can make the trip only occasionally, we constantly struggle with materials needed for our customer projects. We live in Gonzales, Louisiana and would be so happy to have your wonderful store open here. Only problem I see is your employees would spend all their paycheck in the store ;))) Okay, so that’s my request….to throw my town into the pot when locations are chosen for new locations. I hope corporate receives my letter. Thanks!

Boycott HobbyLobby September 22, 2016 at 2:11 pm

The CEO of Hobby Lobby has officially endorsed Trump, thereby blatantly betraying biblical principles. Romans 3:8 “8 And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.”

David Green, in endorsing Trump, is proclaiming, “Let us do evil” (support Trump) “that good may come” (Green is assuming that Trump will appoint a pro-Christian Supreme Court Justice).

No. Let us do GOOD, by trusting in GOD’S ability to place the a pro-Christian Supreme Court Justice. So many people who CLAIM to be Christian, and CLAIM to trust in GOD, have taken up the cry, “In TRUMP we trust!”

Idolatry. Blatant and irrefutable.

Until David Green and Hobby Lobby corporate leaders OFFICIALLY DENOUNCE Trump, we will BOYCOTT.

We refuse to support any person, organization, or business which encourages people to “do evil, so that good may come.”

Instead, we support people, organizations, and businesses which encourage people to “do GOOD” according to GOD’S WORD.

Hillary has been disappointing and disobedient to God her entire life in public office; she promotes everything the Bible teaches against i.e. Gay marriages, killing the unborn babies and sees nothing wrong with how live babies are killed and butchered in abortion clinics; she pushes for open borders and giving illegals all kinds of benefits, including the right to vote; she takes millions of dollars from countries that openly hate the USA — especially Christians; her idols in college and presently are people who desire to destroy America. She lies about everything and gets away with all kinds of horrible, dishonest things — destroying emails, her computers so she wont get caught. Trump is not perfect by any means, but he is the lessor of two evils and has surrounded himself with strong Christians — black and white. Hillary admires Martha Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, who ‘privately’ wanted to keep blacks from multiplying. She made speeches in early 1900’s to the women of KKK movement and they loved her….If Hillary gets elected our USA as we’ve known and loved will no longer exist and what few of our Christian Rights are left (as her party is continuously destroying our Christian rights) — she and her Supreme Court appointed judges will take away all our rights as Christians… I suggest you pay close attention to what you’re hearing and reading and make sure you dont just listen to the corrupt media. If you choose not to vote, you are voting for Hillary and a destroyed America. Please dont boycott Christian-based companies like Hobby Lobby, Chik fila, and others; instead boycott those who promote non Biblical lifestyles like Home Depot and Target just to name a couple. You can find many more to boycott at OneMillionMoms website (strong, Christian group that you can depend on).

9-20-16 I was rudely turned down by store manager Rich from the Lawrenceville georgia location on an exchange for 2 frame I had just purchased. The frames had wire hangers installed by the associate in the framing department. I got the frames home and discovered they are absolutely not going to work for what I need. Rich stated it’s damaged because the installation of the wire hanger and the can’t return. DAMAGED? Your employee professionally installed the wire hanger how is that considered damaged? Where is THIS policy written on your return policy on the back of the receipt? If this is how your treating customers and not standing up to your return policy thats written on the receipt and displayed in your store then you’ve lost multiple customers for life and will spread the word to friends and family to NOT SHOP AT HOBBY LOBBY

I just want to commend two of your employees in the Springfield IL frame dept. store. I was there on Aug 8,2016 in the late afternoon. This young lady and young man was working (and bad on me I did not get their names) but they could not have been more helpful with these two posters that I need matted and framed. They not only helped with getting mattes picked out but gave me suggestions on how to have it framed that they could and did do for me. They turned out Beautiful I could not have been happier. I have moved to Evansville, IN and I did go to that store to have my posters framed and I left so very MAD and did not purchase anything. The girl in the frame dept did not want to be there that day and did not want to help the customers. She would not help me pick out the mats or help choice a color that would go with my posters . Would not even lay the mat choices down so I could look at them she just kept asking me what color did I want . Told her not sure did she have any suggestions no she did not and was to worried about getting them out of order. And messing with her iPad that was hanging around her body . I will never go to that store again . From now on I will travel 250 miles to go to the Springfield IL store. Their staff has always been so very helpful especially in the framing dept. thank you for taking the time to read this.

I live in Omaha, NE and was recently at the Millard Hobby Lobby and asked a Hobby Lobby employee where an item was located in the store and she was very rude she was pointing in the direction and kind of just barking at me… When I approached to ask her she was just standing around having a casual conversation with another employee so I guess I must’ve interrupted… She was very rude to me and I was very unpleased with the customer service.. When i looked at her name tag it said missy.. I’ve been going to Hobby Lobby for many years and have never been treated that way before… I know everyone has there bad days but you should be professional when working and she was the furthest from that… Normally I wouldn’t handle a situation in such a manner but I was so disappointed and mis pleased I left without buying what I went for…

Just letting you know we could use a Hobby Lobby in Lutz, Florida! The nearest ones are almost 20 miles away, and we have nothing like it in this immediate area. There are lots of retail stores nearby, including the Wiregrass Mall, as well as the new Tampa Premium Outlets. This former Kmart location recently closed and it is in a very high traffic area.

She and her crew have been framing my ballet dancers for the past 20 years. Her work is timely and precise.
Thank you for hiring such a hard working dedicated lady!

The sedalia store that just opened has nothing but Illegal drug users Iin it i was in there a week or so ago and this lady you could tell was on something just all spaced out and talking 90 to nothing and was twitching. I don’tthink II willbe going back anytime soon I would think random or at least hiring drug test would be done but looks like they do not care about drug use some Christian based company. It saddens me and for that iwill pray something is done to help all these employees. They need to find the religion that the company was based on.

Hobby lobby chooses their employees very carefully they do not hire a store full of drug using employees smh now if they were a drug user once upon a time ago they give that person the a chance and I applaud them for that for giving ppl a second chance to make right in everything they did wrong at one point in their life so to the woman that made the supposive concern of the store on salsalia or where ever you must not know much about drug users you can’t be spaced out and talking 90 to nothing it’s one or the other and you should be ashamed of yourself making such an awesome store look bad because you have a problem with one of the workers . I’ll say a prayer for you and pray your ugly bone will go away. God bless

I was appalled at how one of your opening employee’s at the Topeka, KS location drove to work on 1-26-16 at 8:00 a.m.. He endangered multiple lives through speeding, tailgating, and cutting in and out of traffic. He speed past 10 cars at an estimated 80 mph (in a 65) lined up to exit from one highway to another, cut off exiting drivers at the last minute to make it to the on-ramp, and tailgated the driver in front of him while on the overpass. He then turned left in front of a vehicle that had the right of way at a stop light because he didn’t want to wait for traffic to clear. He ran a red light while turning left turning into the business parking lot. I watched as he parked and got out of his car. He was on the phone and apparently running late for work. This driver is in his late 20’s, early 30’s, dark hair, brown boots, brown camouflage jacket, and drives a silver 4 door jeep with KS tag 992GGW. WATCH OUT FOR THIS RECKLESS EMPLOYEE REPRESENTING HOBBY LOBBY. I’m sure he thought risking multiple lives was worth making it to work on time.

Patrick — Your Story Is Complete Dog-Poo. If the employee was truly driving that fast there is NO WAY you could have seen the whole incident unless YOU were driving just as dangerously as HE Was. Since you are complaining about something that YOU also did (in order to see the entire incident) that makes you the BIGGEST HYPOCRITE ALIVE. You claim to have only seen this employee exit his car and enter his work site, which means you could NOT have seen the entire incident. By your own admission you are also the BIGGEST LIAR ALIVE. People need to watch out for YOU since you are obviously very, very untrustworthy.

Thank goodness you’re so observant to your tailgating expertise to witness and tell such a story……The story of tailgating tattletale that has absolutely NO VALUE TO HUMANITY…….

My wife purchased a standing cabinet. It appear to be made from the cheapest of materials as the legs were cracked. However that was not my issue. Believe it or not, it had a tag on it that states: WARNING: This product contains TDCPP, a flame retardant chemical know to the State of California to cause cancer.
I have never seen a company so willing to support products that KNOWINGLY may cause cancer?????? I am hoping to receive a call from anyone from HL to explaining why they would sell a product with this disclosure???
Customers: Beware and read the sales tags.

I shop often in your Hobby Lobby store in Cedar Park, Tx on 1431. I shop with your company because of your religious values. I have never seen a manager that is so rude to customers and the employees. Since this new manager has been in this store all of the happy faces have turned to sad. I know with your Christian values you would not hire someone that treats the employees like they are in the army. If I had to work for him I would leave your company. No one should have to dread going to work. You have a great crew in that store, and I hate to see the morale go down.
I think maybe this manager needs to have more training on how to treat the employees.
If he would work with them and not give orders like he was in the military I think it would work better for him and the staff. I was a district manager for a large company so I know that if you treat your employees like you would like to be treated they would do anything for you. They have to be treated like they are as important as the managers. RESPECT

Visited your store in Lakeland Florida today. Always happy to go in look around. Get ideas and of course supplies.
While there I did what all women do. Had to find the bathroom quick! I had to walk the whole back wall of the store only to find the bathroom located on the side wall. Since bathrooms to your stores are usually located in the front or the back of the store walls. While this is a great marketing idea not so good when one need the facility quickly.
My suggestion is a large sign with an arrow to point one in the right direction. Your signs now are lower then the inventory on the shelves.
Totally hope you take this into consideration as one that will shop longer if she is a happy shopper.

I am compelled to state why I will no longer purchase or walk into a Hobby Lobby store. I hope this reaches many individuals. Growing up my parents were active followers of the Bill Gothard cult. I was mentally, physically, and sexually abused by my father. This group may have strong beliefs, but it does give control to the man of the house. The man is to be the “umbrella of protection” and the women must follow. I was not allowed to attend college because it would mean leaving the “umbrella”. However, the umbrella was a source of abuse. The only way I found my way out was to be strong enough to leave. I do credit God and my husband for showing me how to be strong and independent.
What does this have to do with Hobby Lobby? The Green family (owners) are major contributors to this cult. I beg Hobby Lobby to cease contributing to this cult that has ruined so many lives. The company could still get out God’s word without demoralizing women and setting them up to be dependent upon men.

I no longer have any contact with my family due to their beliefs. I am a Christian and do believe in God’s word. This is not an attack on Christianity. Just on a “wolf in lamb’s cloth”. Until Hobby Lobby denounces Bill Gothard and his teachings, I will continue be a voice. Thank you for listening.

So hear it is. Proudce sticks of gum with bible scripters printed on each of them. So when some one pulls out a stick a gum they are getting gods word out of each stick.

Good afternoon. A new Hobby Lobby is opening in Albemarle, NC (28001). My wife was asked to report to orientation 1 September. Unfortunately my wife showed up at orientation 7 minutes late according to the time specified on the paper she received from hiring official. My wife “thought” the orientation started at 0915. When she appeared, materials in hand, the person holding the orientation specifically stated that Hobby Lobby does not tolerate lateness. Understood. However, my wife told the representative the truth that she thought the orientation began at 0915. She had the same time on her calendar. THIS WAS AN HONEST MISTAKE! Now, Hobby Lobby stores and facilities are open for business every day with the exception of Sunday due to Christian beliefs so employees to have more time to spend for worship, rest, and family, even at the expense of profits. I ask you this…a woman who made an honest mistake was immediately punished on the spot without an ounce of forgiveness or understanding. SEVEN MINUTES LATE because of a misunderstanding. I am asking that you contact the Hobby Lobby manager in Albemarle, NC, and let my wife have her job. Being selected was a blessing to us that should not have been taken away because of a misunderstanding. If you are truly Christian based, then forgive my wife for a minor infraction that quite frankly didn’t cost anyone any money. Thank you. I can be reached at 704-438-6188. My wife at 704-425-****.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of these issues. My daughter who is very into being perfect in her job, talked to her manager about giving her a set schedule like she had when she started working there. My daughter asked her manager to allow this again so she could make plans for a babysitter. The manager gAve her eight o’clock start time, which was fine, however the next week the manager changed her mind and put her back on at nine. This however, was not good as my daughter. has to put kids on the bus for eight fifty. My daughter also works Saturday night, which only gives her Sunday to find someone to put them on the bus. My daughter is very work conscious and comes home crying at time’s because she didn’t have time to finish her order because the manager takes her out of the department to go on register, which puts her behing. Unfortunately, I don’t believe this company is very religious nor very caring as they say About the employee or there families. I could write a six mile long message here but bottom line is they don’t understand that not all people lie as the company and managers do. Take car and maybe God is telling her there is a better job out there for her and her faith will help her find it. God Bless and hope things get better for you.

Hobby Lobby
I want to tell you about a good location for one of your stores. It is a stand alone empty store on the corner of route #541 and Bromley Rd. In Burlington, NJ. There are no store craft and supplies stores of your caliber in this area. There is a Walmart but they do not have quality or quantity of supplies. We hope you will consider this location as a possibility

Thank you

For several years I have purchased the Matboard Value pack (35 in pack) for use in my pastel artwork. I used the 8 x 10 size most but also used the 5 x 7 size. I liked the assortment of colors (color on 1 side & white on the other. I used about 70 of them every 60 days. I found this fall that the Terre Haute, IN store no longer has them in stock. I would appreciate having them back in stock for my artwork & other projects which I used them for. Is it a problem of supply or a problem of demand by customer? I would like an answer to this question from someone in Corporate.. Perhaps CEO David Green can find out for me. Waiting to hear from you.

Congradulations on todays victory regarding the supreme courts ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby. It’s about time the Supreme Court finally did something worthwhile. I’m glad Hobby Lobby did not back down against a corrupt government (Obamacare is a slap in the face to Americans everywhere). More Americans need to get the facts and before they go to the polls learn the difference between truth and deception. You stepped up to the place and went against a corrupt goverment. It pays to have God on your side.

Dear sirs: I want to tell you how much I love your stores. I could spend all day there admiring your merchandise. I have a special request for you: please open a store near our town in McComb, Mississippi. The nearest Hobby Lobby is 60 miles away in Louisiana or 75 miles away in Hattiesburg,Ms. We have a large empty building in our mall where Sears closed their business.There are many ladies (and men) who have hobbies in our town and surrounding smaller towns as well as school projects all year. The only fabric available is the small selection at Walmart. We are located right on I-55 and half way between Jackson,Ms. and New Orleans,La with easy access to the local mall. Please consider my request.
