Hobby Lobby...maybe?

Hobby Lobby’s corporate office has yet to return messages with questions about the Bozeman store, but it appears the former Hastings location is under construction again. On or before Dec. 22, an industrial dumpster was placed in front of the building and the area by the front entrance was fenced off and, on Dec. 23, construction (or some other form of loud work) could be heard inside. The big orange sign facing Main Street still stands, but a year later, Bozeman still doesn’t haven an answer to when the store will open or what’s going on in the meantime.

Huffine construction

The former Slumberland building is under construction and you, dear readers, have been asking questions about what’s going on there. Building owner Mike Lisster said more information will come in March, but, for the time being, the construction is to improve on the building and get it ready for its next step, whatever that may be.
