Hobby Lobby is one big arts and crafts project in progressPublished: Thursday, August 10, 2017 By: Richard Mize Source: NewsOK
A million square feet here and a million square feet there, and pretty soon you're talking about — Hobby Lobby, which just started yet another nearly 1 million-square-foot warehouse near its corporate headquarters.
When the new distribution center at 6701 SW 44 is finished a year from now, Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. will own nearly 10.5 million square feet of warehouse space, including a small percentage of office space in each structure, in industrial southwest Oklahoma City.
That's 241 acres, indoors, enough for 185 football fields.
That's about 10 percent of all industrial space in Oklahoma City, owned and leased, according to industrial broker Randy Lacey at CBRE.
