health times; font-size: 16px;”>Hobby Lobby will have their official grand opening Monday August 4th.  But they hung out the OPEN sign on Friday August 1st.  It will be their first store in Ventura County.  With crafts and seasonal items they offer reduced prices and good service. The company hired 65 people to set up the new store and will keep 35 on staff as they settle in for business.

The recent controversy engulfing the firm over their stand on freedom of religious conscience didn’t seem to keep customers away.  The parking lot was full when hobby.lobby.5we visited the store Saturday afternoon and a great many shoppers were roaming the well-stocked aisles.  The shelves were full of the usual fare one would find in a hobby super store, craft items, artificial flowers, how-to books and more.  But there seemed to be a defining theme, with soft background music reminiscent of gentle folk and apple pie.  Faith items were evident, placards with uplifting messages along with the usual fun pokes and jabs such as: “I’d agree with you but then we’d both be wrong.”
