Hobby Lobby, a major arts and crafts supply store, was announced Wednesday as the latest tenant for Garden City's Schulman Crossing retail development.

Mayor Dan Fankhauser made the announcement during his State of the City address, saying the 55,000-square-foot store will be the second largest store in the new shopping center.

Four other retailers were identified last month for Schulman Crossing, which will be located north of Menards near the intersection of the bypass and Schulman Avenue. They include Dick's Sporting Goods, Ross Dress for Less, Cato Fashions and Ulta cosmetics.

Headquartered in Oklahoma City, Hobby Lobby was founded in a garage in 1970 as an extension of a miniature picture frames company, and officially began operating as Hobby Lobby in 1972 with just 300 square feet of retail space. The company has 559 stores across the nation, including one in Dodge City, that average about 55,000 square feet and offer more than 67,000 crafting and home decor products.
