Hobby Lobby and PetSmart to open at Holiday Village Mall
November 10, 2016
Two leading national retailers, Hobby Lobby and Petsmart, Inc., are coming to Holiday Village Mall.
Hobby Lobby, a leading arts and crafts retailer, will occupy 48,100-square-feet. PetSmart, Inc., the largest specialty retailer of services and products for pets, will take 19,100-square-feet. The new stores will occupy the former Sears space.
“We are pleased that these national retailers, new to the Great Falls market, have selected Holiday Village Mall for their new stores. Their presence expands the selection of merchandise for our shoppers and creates a positive synergy with the shopping center’s current merchants,” said Shane Etzwiler, the mall’s general manager.
“Holiday Village Mall provides excellent visibility and a strong customer base, essential factors to national retailers seeking expansion. The mall’s location just off I-15, the main corridor through Montana, provides easy access for customers coming from central Montana and southern Alberta, Canada,” said Etzwiler.
“We have had our eye on Great Falls for a while and are eager to get started on renovations,” said Bob Miller, communications coordinator for Hobby Lobby. “We have some very loyal customers in Montana and we look forward to getting the doors open and becoming a part of the community.”
According to Miller, the Great Falls Hobby Lobby is expected to bring 35 to 50 jobs to the community. Store hours will be Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Hobby Lobby stores are closed on Sunday.
Great Falls will be Hobby Lobby’s third store in Montana. Other stores are located in Billings and Helena.
PetSmart provides a broad range of competitively priced pet food and pet products and offers dog training, pet grooming, pet boarding, PetSmart Doggie Day Camp day care services and pet adoption services in-store.
The company is known for its commitment to pets, as evidenced by its in-store pet adoption programs. Through adoption partnerships with independent nonprofit organizations, PetSmart Charities® and PetSmart Charities™ of Canada, PetSmart helps to save the lives of more than 500,000 homeless pets each year.
