It sure has been a quick 19 years. That's how long Hobby Lobby has been in its current Towne Square North location and, well, in Owensboro, period.

I was shocked to learn it was 1998 when we got the popular craft store.

It wasn't as shocking when I learned that Hobby Lobby will soon bid a fond farewell to its present home.

Eyewitness News/WEHT reports that the new Hobby Lobby will open in January, 2018.

I received an email from Bob Miller, the communications coordinator for Hobby Lobby in their Oklahoma City home office.

He simply said that Hobby Lobby looks forward to providing customers with an even better shopping experience at the new location.

The new location has yet to be revealed.
