My Experience Shopping at the Hobby Lobby in Green Bay

Exploring the Arts & Crafts Wonderland in Wisconsin’s Titletown

As an avid crafter and hobbyist, I was thrilled to discover a Hobby Lobby location right here in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Nestled in the heart of Titletown, this arts and crafts paradise has quickly become my go-to spot for all things DIY. From seasonal home decor to crafting essentials, Hobby Lobby truly has it all. I wanted to share my experiences and tips for navigating this craft store gem in our very own Green Bay community.

The Hobby Lobby store is conveniently located at 2311 S Oneida St, right off I-41 near the Bay Park Square shopping center. This makes it easy for crafters across Green Bay to access, whether you’re coming from downtown, Ashwaubenon, or De Pere.

The store hours are fairly standard for the craft retail world:

  • Monday through Saturday: 9AM to 8PM
  • Closed on Sundays

However, I have noticed they occasionally have special holiday hours, so it’s worth calling ahead or checking their website before making a trip over if you’re visiting on or around major holidays like Easter, July 4th, Thanksgiving or Christmas.

In terms of COVID-19 safety protocols, Hobby Lobby has been requiring masks and implementing social distancing requirements. They also frequently sanitize high-touch surfaces, offer contactless payment options, and may limit the number of customers in the store at one time. I’ve always felt safe browsing the aisles at my own pace here.

One major perk of shopping at Hobby Lobby is the ability to buy online and pick up in store. Their website allows you to have orders shipped to your home or retrieved at your local Hobby Lobby location. I love utilizing this for heavier items like framed art or furniture. It saves the hassle of lugging it through the store yourself! The online selection is stellar too, so don’t hesitate to order specialty crafting supplies not in stock at the Green Bay location for pick up.

Speaking of selection, the product variety at this store never ceases to amaze me! From basic paints and brushes to every paper craft supply imaginable, you could spend hours getting lost in the endless aisles. Some of my favorite sections include:

  • Floral arrangements and greenery: The options here are stunning and affordable; I love stocking up on pretty blooms to liven up vases and centerpieces.
  • Seasonal and holiday decor: You can make your home festive for any occasion thanks to the ornaments, figurines, wreaths, and more. Their Christmas selection is a sight to behold.
  • Picture frames and wall decor: Pieces that can elevate any blank wall into a gallery display, including canvas prints, mirrors, and photo frames.
  • Fabric: Hobby Lobby has a rainbow of cotton print fabrics, fleece, canvas, linen, felt, lace, ribbons, and any other textile you could possibly imagine.
  • Yarn and knitting essentials: For all my fellow knitters, they carry all the fibers, needles, and accessories you need for your next project.
  • Art supplies: Paints, brushes, sketchbooks, easels, clay – everything to unlock your inner artist.

And that’s just the tip of the crafting iceberg! They also offer jewelry making components, candles and soap making supplies, models, science kits, party supplies, and storage solutions. Prepare to take notes and make multiple trips back once you get a peek at everything inside.

In terms of discounts and deals, Hobby Lobby certainly delivers. They offer:

  • Weekly storewide discounts on select departments like floral, fabric, gallery frames, etc. This info is available on their website.
  • Coupon mailers for % off your entire purchase. I try to use these strategically for my biggest hauls.
  • Sales throughout holiday weekends and during seasonal transitions. For example, deeply discounted Christmas items in January.
  • Clearance sections with already marked down items. I almost always find great bargains to stash away for future projects.
  • A loyalty program that earns you coupons the more you shop there in a year.

The savings can really add up if you plan your shopping trips wisely and take advantage of these frugal crafter perks. As far as I’m concerned, the deals are just another reason to love Hobby Lobby!

I’ve found the staff here to be very responsive whether I had a general question or needed an order status update. Don’t hesitate to reach out to them!

For avid framers, you’ll be pleased to know this Hobby Lobby does offer custom framing services. They have a dedicated framing counter with experts who can assist you in selecting the perfect frame, mat, and accent options to display and preserve your important keepsakes. This includes framing for posters, needlework, jerseys, artwork, and more. Turn your DIY projects into professional gallery-worthy pieces with their help!

One of the things that impresses me most about this location is the selection of local and specialty products curated just for the Green Bay store, with our community in mind. For example, around Packers season they bring in team fabrics, yarn, signs, and trinkets. You can always find festive Fourth of July decor and treats from nearby Door County.

The store manager also does an amazing job featuring upcoming classes, events, and new product arrivals on the in-store digital signage and video monitors. It feels like they tailor parts of their inventory and promotions especially for us crafting fanatics in Titletown. That local touch keeps me coming back.

Overall, whether you’re an experienced artisan or just getting into arts, crafts, and DIY as a new hobby, Hobby Lobby is sure to be a go-to. Here are my top tips for visiting the Green Bay location:

  • Make a list – The selection is massive, so plan ahead to avoid impulse purchases that bust your budget. Stick to a list of exactly what you need for projects.
  • Ask for help locating items – Don’t waste time wandering. The employees are very knowledgeable about their inventory and can point you right to what you’re looking for.
  • Come early on weekends – Crowds tend to swell later in the day on Saturdays and Sundays. Get there right when they open for the best browsing and checkout experience.
  • Download their app – You can view weekly sales, coupons, workshops, and even create shopping lists right from your phone. Very handy to have!
  • Sign up for their newsletter – Stay on top of sales, trends, and exclusive subscriber perks like giveaways and contests when you join their email list.
  • Follow on social media – Their Facebook and Instagram pages showcase new products, styling ideas, and promote fun in-store events. Great for finding inspiration!

With the holidays right around the corner, I know I’ll be headed back to Hobby Lobby many times over the next few months to tackle my gift and decorating projects. I can’t wait to see what festive finds they have in store this season and take advantage of all the savings! For any fellow crafters and DIYers in the Green Bay area, be sure to make Hobby Lobby your go-to headquarters for all things handmade. Bring your creativity and get ready for inspiration overload in the aisles. Happy crafting!
