    Hobby Lobby in the news:

    I withhold my comment as I would expect the Moderator to delete it (rightfully so)

    Well, here in Wisconsin the rules for what constitutes an essential business are so random that yes, Hobby Lobby is among those that can remain open. I guess they are just as essential as a custard store or a specialty cheese store.

      That is sad that businesses are putting profit margins before people. We don't have any of those stores here. I think Michael's here, you can order to pick up or deliver, not absolutely certain.

      Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

      Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

        It's unconscionable. I will "voice" my opinion to them on this by not giving them my spending dollars.

          normally would say vote with feet, but as we have a stay at home order!
          feet should not be there.

            Fairly new HL in my town. They just lost any business from me.
            TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

              HL was cited the other day by Denver. There is one open right by me. I made the decision that I will not longer do business with them. Their business is no more essential than Joanns and Michaels, both of which are closed.

                Well, I couldn't tell you which stores in the Houston area or open or closed since I have been home. I watch snippits of the news, but reach my limits and just turn it off. Everyone has there own opinions, and that's what makes the world go round.

                  I've never been a HL fan, but this greed and lack of responsibility cements it. I will never shop there again.

                      The one in my area is closed. If Joann's and other are open for call in orders, whats the difference.
                      they are "open". Right?

                      Call in with curbside pickup limits exposure. Allowing customers to browse in the store is a LOT different.

                    Never been a big HL fan...but I will NOT shop their again. Actually I will NOT do business with any company that is NOT essential, but claims that status to remain open during this pandemic. The only 'and businesses' that are essential, are those that sell food, prescriptions, gas, and maybe home supply stores. Those should only be open for call ahead orders to be picked up....not open for people to browse around in. I am fully expecting some grocers, including WM to go to online ordering, and pick up only (I heard that from an associate) They are getting tired of people bringing their entire families in shopping for everything from clothes to pool accessories, to toys. What part of how serious this is don't people get?

                      I can see where businesses like Staples or Office Max are considered essential as they sell things needed for folks to set up their "work from home" technology. Plumbers, electricians, etc. could be available for emergency repairs, but non-emergent work should be temporarily suspended, IMHO.

                    Just on the news: Colorado Attorney General sent a cease, desist letter to HL. They will not be open here tomorrow.

                      I decided the other day that I won't cross their front door again. I find it pitiful.

                        I am surprised to hear this about Hobby Lobby. I am glad I read this post because I had missed this in the news.. They have lost my business also.

                          Although I don't shop there often, I will continue to support our local HL when it re-opens. There are certain things that I can find there that no one else carries. One of our LQS is open limited hours. They are considered essential because they also have a machine & vacuum repair business. Another LQS (the one in Lyons) was deemed "non-essential" & had to close. I have never shopped at a Joann's. The closest one to me is 30 mi. away.
