Hobby Lobby, the Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts and general merchandise chain, says it plans to open its new 55,000-square-foot store in Sacramento's Point West Plaza shopping center in the second quarter of this year.
Construction is ongoing along Arden Way across from Arden Fair Mall. Kohl's is an anchor tenant in the complex.
The new outlet will bring about 35 to 50 jobs, paying $13 an hour for full-time positions and $9 an hour for part-timers.
Hobby Lobby also is eyeing a closing Food Source store site on East Stockton Boulevard in Elk Grove.
The retailer has about a dozen stores in California. It opened a store at 1815 Douglas Blvd. in Roseville in 2011.
Hobby Lobby has more than 525 stores nationwide.
