Hobby Lobby Hours: What Time Do They Open & Close Their Doors?

Updated December 8, 2023 by Kyle James

Hobby Lobby is one of the top arts and crafts retailers that’s been around for 50 years. Besides the notoriously large array of home décor, “hobby worthy” supplies, and DIY craft ideas, I was curious to know when they were open and when they closed. After all, they close their doors on days when other businesses rake in sales, they even close on a couple “holidays” that are kinda strange. To save the guesswork of hoping Hobby Lobby is open when you go, learn exactly what Hobby Lobby’s hours are today and everyday of the year.

Hobby Lobby Hours: What Time Do They Open & Close Their Doors?

What Are Hobby Lobby’s Weekday Hours?

Hobby Lobby is open from 9 am to 8 pm during regular weekdays.

Although most Hobby Lobby stores are open at these times, it’s smart you look up your specific store to check their weekday hours.

That being said, expect most Hobby Lobby stores to be open from 9 am to 8 pm, Monday through Friday.

According to this Reddit thread, the owner decided on these reasonable store hours because as a teenager he hated working jobs that required him to work late and get up really early to start a shift.

What Are Their Weekend Hours?

Hobby Lobby is also open from 9 am to 8 pm on Saturday.

However, Hobby Lobby is CLOSED on Sundays.

That being said, you can still make online purchases on Sundays (or any day/time of the week).

Why Do They Close On Sundays?

As mentioned, unfortunately, all Hobby Lobby locations are closed on Sundays.

Hobby Lobby is closed on Sundays due to religious reasons.

Hobby Lobby is a Christian-based company where Sundays serve as days of rest in the Christian faith.

Therefore, they lock the doors on Sundays as a way to give more time for customers and employees alike to worship and spend time with friends and family.

What Are Hobby Lobby’s Holiday Hours?

Inevitably, Hobby Lobby is closed or has limited hours on certain holidays.

The following holidays that have limited store hours include:

– New Year’s Day (9 am to 5 pm)

– Memorial Day (9 am to 5:30 pm)

– Independence Day (9 am to 5:30 pm)

– Labor Day (9 am to 5:30 pm)

– Christmas Eve (9 am to 5:30 pm)

– New Year’s Eve (9 am to 5 pm)

And….Hobby Lobby is CLOSED on the following holidays:

– Easter Sunday

– Mother’s Day

– Father’s Day

– Thanksgiving

– Christmas

I find it strange that they advertise on their website that they close their doors on Mother’s and Father’s Day. Both of these days are ALWAYS on a Sunday, a day in which they are closed anyways. 

On all other holidays, Hobby Lobby should be open during normal store hours from 9 am to 8 pm.

As always, be sure to research your own Hobby Lobby store for specific holiday hours as location hours may vary.

What Are Their Black Friday Hours?

Hobby Lobby is open 8 am through 9 pm on Black Friday.

Shop till you drop at the biggest shopping day of the year at Hobby Lobby.

Although they don’t offer any extended or early-hour sales, you still have the regular store hours to shop for all the deals this Black Friday at Hobby Lobby.

Mother’s Day and Father’s Day always occur on a Sunday and they are always closed on Sundays so ….?????

No Sunday

I noticed that too. Maybe it’s a way of gaslighting people to think. “Wow, it’s so nice of Hobby Lobby to let their employees be with family on Mother’s Day/Father’s Day.”
