Hobby Lobby, a retail chain that sells crafts and home décor, is slated to open in Burbank this summer in the former Orchard Supply Hardware building.
The Oklahoma City-based company, which currently has 20 stores in California, will open in the 72,000-square-foot building located at 641 N Victory Blvd., according to company officials.
"We feel that we can bring a very unique shopping experience to the area," said Hobby Lobby spokesman Vincent Parker in an email. "We are looking forward to becoming part of the community."
Hobby Lobby has been in the national news lately because the Supreme Court heard consolidated arguments last week in Hobby Lobby's lawsuit, which claims the company should be allowed to deny its employees health insurance coverage for certain types of birth control based on the owner's personal religious beliefs.
Hobby Lobby's move to Burbank will bring 35 to 50 new jobs to the city.
