1876 - California oil industry born as CSO No. 4 in Pico Canyon becomes state's first commercially productive oil well [story]
Pico No. 4


Hobby Lobby, the Oklahoma-based craft store chain involved in a controversial Supreme Court decision, recently signed a lease on a Santa Clarita Valley property, according to a real estate site.

“Hobby Lobby has signed a lease for the former 52,000 square foot Orchard Supply Hardware space at the Bouquet Canyon Shopping Center,” according to a news release from Cypress Retail Group, which posted the information on its site.

The location is slated for the Saugus shopping center at Bouquet Canyon Road and Newhall Ranch Road, according to the Cypress site.

The hobby and craft store will neighbor OfficeMax and a vacant storefront available next to a Best Buy.

The Hobby Lobby location is part of a 200,000 square foot shopping center that includes Best Buy, Trader Joe’s, Petco, Office Max and Sola Salon as tenants.

Hobby Lobby is scheduled to open their doors in early 2015. The lease was announced in July.

In the decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, the Supreme Court ruled June 30 that federal law gives for-profit businesses owned by a small group a right to refuse, for religious reasons, to provide birth control methods and services for their employees, according to a SCOTUSblog post by Lyle Denniston.

The 5-4 vote gained national attention for the craft store’s policies, which ran counter to “Obamacare” regulations as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The court found: “As applied to closely held corporations, the regulations promulgated by the Department of Health and Human Services requiring employers to provide their female employees with no-cost access to contraception violate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” according to the blog post.

    Boycott Hobby Lobby!

  3. When did they close OSH?

  4. Tom Purzak Tom Purzak says:

    Very cool. Welcome to Santa Clarita. They were never against a woman’s choice. They just wanted to pay for contraceptives not abortions. I believe we are adults and should be responsible for our decisions , if you want an abortion pay for it yourself

  5. No they pretended to be a mom and pop store and they will pay for boner pills in a hot minute.

  7. Zita Norte Zita Norte says:

    Zita Naudin Norte!!!

  8. I am so excited! Wish they’d been there when we lived around the corner!

  9. Not cool, too many apt’s & stores, where are the animals going to end up?

  10. Chelle DeEtte I don’t know what a Hobby Lobby is

  11. Megan Roy Megan Roy says:

    That map is wrong, greenhouse cafe is long gone.

  12. Sinderella Man, as far as I know, “boner pills” don’t harm or kill other people.

  13. So your birthday starts when you are in the womb? Add 9 months to your age then.

  14. I don’t care that much. I will never shop there. They’re only more to certain areas and they have their demographic. My hobby is to not worry about what someone does in the bed and give the rights for those to have all the health rights no matter what. What fake mom and pop store is next?

  15. What is replacing Elephant Bar? Crossing my fingers for Cheesecake Factory!

  16. Why there?? I HATE that parking lot! That’s why I never go to Trader Joes!

    • Exactly! And I rarely go to Petco for the same reason too! I only go into that center if I have to because parking sucks!!

    • Joe Nocella Joe Nocella says:

      That parking lot became a mess when Trader Joe’s came in and brought along their customers who just don’t care about the other drivers. What would help are two things: 1 – get rid of the parking directly in front of Petco and Trader Joe’s. That appears to creat bottlenecks when lazy drivers are waiting for the spots to open up. 2 – the City needs to work on the light time issue for those waiting to make the left turn into the parking lot off of Bouquet. Traffic backs up beyond Newhall Ranch in many cases because the timing is so off.

    • Amy Kimes Amy Kimes says:

      I hate the parking lot, but I don’t think it will be that bad once the newness of Hobby Lobby fades. It’s getting in and out of this shopping center that needs improving as Joe stated.

  17. Sooooo excited !!!!!

  18. No more going to Michaels for me. Yay for Hobby Lobby.

  19. Awesome :-) I missed Hobby Lobby..wish that Bill Miller, Whataburger and HEB will open stores here too!

  20. Jeff Gibeau Jeff Gibeau says:

    Boycott people who are against them!!!!

  21. Haha.. they moved into the old Osh in Burbank.

  22. They only provide 16/20 forms of birth control to their employees and the Democrats told me that this is the worst thing in the world for some reason

  23. Have them out here in Texas. Awesome store. You love it.

  24. This is gonna be fun.

  25. Free abortions in the alley out back!

  26. Very good. We welcome them and the jobs they bring!

  27. Never been in a Hobby Lobby….love to do crafts….

  28. Gary Yamane Gary Yamane says:

    Funny how you libs condemn Capital Punishment, but support Abortions. That makes me chuckle…

  29. Whaaaaaaaat?!!!!! Elizabeth Nivon McAnnally, Janice Walsh, Mike Walsh!!!!

  30. Jennifer Langford, we’re going to get a Hobby Lobby!!! Yay!!!

  31. Ken Perkins Ken Perkins says:

    Hobby Lobby is micromanaging at its worst, always under the microscope. HL has been very dishonest to my dad who used to work for them too, now i won’t even go into one.

  32. Love that store! For all of you that are boycotting Hobby Lobby ( no big deal) don’t think they will miss your business! I support them!

  33. Kathe Rich Kathe Rich says:

    I will not be shopping there.

  34. Leah Ehrsam I think this is going to make you happy.

  35. Haha. You can see my house in that picture.

  36. Someone mentioned Bill Miller and HEB must be from San Antonio or close to. My two things I miss the most about SA.

  37. Not going. And for the record, “Libs” don’t support abortion, they support a person’s RIGHT TO CHOOSE and live with whatever choice they make. smh.

  38. Last I checked this is the USA! You are free to choose not to shop there! For me, I love that store and wish I had one closer to me. Next time I’m in SCV (which is often) and they are open for business (employing people as well) I will be shopping in it.

  39. I can’t wait don’t care about anyone else’s views I love there selection of goods and fabrics

  40. As soon as I heard Hobby Lobby was coming to Ventura I thought about the old OSH building for SCV. Great call……only thing is, that parking lot sucks.

  41. Dora Warren Dora Warren says:

    Love that store! Great inventory and super prices. I don’t care about their Political positions. They’re entitled to opinion rather I agree or not. I shop there and will continue

  42. Lenee Bernal Lenee Bernal says:

    Dale Kish Sahm…. Krystal Mora Patrick Drury!!!

  43. So glad you guys didn’t mention that crooked airsoft store there.

  44. Sorry for my ignorance. I live in the UK. Under the law in the USA, can an employer pick and choose what medical care they will pay for according to their religious beliefs? For instance, could a company refuse to pay for blood transfusions because it is against their beliefs? And do these companies make this plain to their employees before they join the company? I count my lucky stars that I live in a country with free health care at the point of access for all of its citizens. We leave these decisions to the doctors- it must seem a strange concept to you.

    • No, it’s not a strange concept. I thank my lucky stars that I live in a free country and owning a business doesn’t mean I have to go against my beliefs. And guess what? If those beliefs don’t match yours, you don’t have to work OR shop there! Amazing how that works, isn’t it?

    • You didn’t address the point- blood transfusions? If you can deny people on the basis of religion you can deny anything you like. Are you really saying that is sensible? Really? Well God Bless America and I hope you all live a very long and healthy life!

    • Kevin Arnold Kevin Arnold says:

      No they can’t deny blood transfusions because the federal government is slowly taking away a company’s ability to make their own choices. It’s quite disgusting actually.

    • wow, I guess I am just looking at it all from a very different perspective. Anyway, take care all and good luck with it all. Sounds like people are mighty upset about the whole thing.

    • Well, I think you’re missing the point. An abortion ends a life. No, an employer can not block a blood transfusion. Probably because that isn’t considered so controversial. You don’t end a life when you have a blood transfusion. And,if you apply to a company and don’t know their history a s policies, then I’m not sure why you’d work there.

    • Sorry but with respect Michelle you missed my point unless I misunderstand the law. This Hobby Lobby place is saying that they will not give medical cover for certain procedures (termination) based on their religious beliefs. Jehovah’s Witnesses, I believe, do not allow blood transfusions based on their religion. Therefore, on this basis, a company owned by a Jehovah’s Witness could deny medical procedures (blood transfusions) under this very same law. The right of Hobby Lobby would be extended to all faiths. I was really saying that I’m not sure the law should get involved and that doctors should make the medical ethical choices they have been trained for.

    • What does this have to do with abortion? It won’t stop at abortions – this case is going to turn corporate healthcare into a salad spinner of f&@k. The poster comes from a country with national healthcare and is clearly surprised that businesses here can elect to offer a la carte insurance plans. They had the option to offer no health insurance but they want to eat their cake and have it too.

    • didn’t we beat the snot out of England a couple of hundred years ago? Why not stick to social commentary on issues effecting your little island nation?

    • So Tully- are you saying they could have offered nothing but chose to offer insurance but not for anything related to termination (I assume morning after pill, IUD and abortion)? Yes, I think this is dangerous ground. I wouldn’t be surprised that if Hobby Lobby win their case (is it still a case to win?) you don’t see more of this picking and choosing of health care. Why stop there?

    • But Anthony, this is so much more interesting than anything on my English feeds this morning. Besides, I was born and raised in Chicago. Have a great day folks!

    • Hello Holly, I would like to point out that Hobby Lobby can not and do not deny their employees anything.

      I like ice cream. If my employer does not buy me ice cream they are not denying me ice cream as I can buy my own ice cream and the ice cream parlor is not going to call my employer to see if I can buy ice cream or not, they will simply sell it to me. The same applies to anything else you can buy including IUD, Ella, or Plan-B.

    • Well played @willis Newton

  45. Cody Lucas Cody Lucas says:

    Jenna Hammond Roper I can’t wait!

  46. Ilia Banks Ilia Banks says:

    YES!!! I’ve been wanting a HL here for years!!

  47. Im so excited Lenee Bernal we might have to get part time jobs there !!

  48. Teresa Cattigan Schaefer Cynthia Musnug YAY!!! It’s true!!

  49. Why does it still have Greenhouse Cafe in the pic if it’s been closed for a while

  50. Jill Fithian Wade woo hoo

  51. Yeah. Those darned liberal Trader Joe’s shoppers are holding up the parking. It’s all their fault.

    And Holly Kal-Weiss – in the US, HL fought and won the right to choose what their Healthcare covers for its employees. When I was a kid I had medical issues that required me to go on birth control. I was not sexually active. I had other issues that were corrected with the medication. Under the HL guidelines that medication would not have been covered.

    But fear not men… you little blue erectile assistance pills are safe. =)

    • Oh Really? you needed IUD, Ella or Plan B? The birth control pills are covered by HL health plan so get informed or quit spreading misinformation and/or lies.

    • Theresa Reed Theresa Reed says:

      The plan b pill only attempts to stop a woman from getting pregnant, and does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING if she is already pregnant once taken. Maybe you yourself should be a little more informed.

  52. Sara Weber Sara Weber says:

    Welcome to Santa Clarita Hobby Lobby! I am so excited!

  53. Kevin Arnold Kevin Arnold says:

    Madison Curtis right as you’re leaving huh?

  54. Amy Vee Amy Vee says:

    Holly, wasn’t addressed because we really don’t know. They were only concerned about birth control. If a business owned by Jehovah witnesses was big enough to push the issue, we’d knew about blood transfusions for sure. Best wishes to any future hl employees. You may want to really consider signing your right to take legal action against them, which is part of the documents you must sign prior to employment. But hey, that seems on the up and up, right? Smh

  55. Sheila Casey Sheila Casey says:

    Sounds as if you a bunch of friends will be all set.

  56. wow why not be positive and leave out “controversial Supreme court decision” does it really matter… this will help boost our valleys economy with jobs and shopping… and fill one of the many empty buildings in our shopping centers.. I think its great and dont care about the controversy I care about business coming into our valley period!!!

  57. Gina Miles I was just looking at their site yesterday regretting not going in to the one in Havasu…we will have one down the street :)

  58. Some of you guys (and gals) kill me. If you don’t like Hobby Lobby don’t patronize the business. Easy Peasy.

    According to the highest court in America they have a right to make their birth control rules. America has many bigger issues to take care of. Look around. Forget your sexual rights for Pete sakes. Is that all your life is about. Men too. Have we gone totally nuts about sex. Do you really wake up in the morning and think who can you destroy because of sex. Get a grip on it.

    While you are shaking in your boots about birth control we have terrorist who would love to bomb you back to the stone age. Then who would pay for your birth control. Put your head back out of certain body parts and look around.

    When your reservoirs dry up and there is no more drinking water and the generators shut down on the big dams will you wake up totally peed off at Hobby Lobby because you don’t have a nice gulp of water before you have sex.

    Sorry. So sorry

  59. Tracie Lopez Tracie Lopez says:

    Jenn Serrano no more driving to rancho :)

  60. Well, another place to NOT SHOP AT.

  61. Jeff Stewart Jeff Stewart says:

    If you are a woman and you take birth control, the owners think you are a sinner—and probably immoral.

  62. Irene Gelman Irene Gelman says:

    Oh how horrible. Hobby Lobby is not my store. I truly hope that they go BUST

  63. Jan Phillips Jan Phillips says:

    No freekin way. I’m so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  64. You are all so funny about the parking. One reason I moved out here was because parking is so easy.
    By far the easiest Trader Joe’s parking lot I’ve ever had to navigate.

    You still won’t find me in hobby lobby:-0

  65. Donna King Donna King says:

    Love this store but isn’t that parking lot already the worst in this valley?

  66. Was just at Hobby Lobby this last weekend and it was PACKED….just imagine if there were no boycotters, there would be lines to get in the door~;). Yay for Hobby Lobby! Jessica Sanders

  67. Ana . . Go and check out the one in Burbank . . It’s a lot bigger then Michaels

  68. I love michaels, Joanne’s, and Beverly’s !! Thanks for supporting our community for years!!!!

  69. We are all in so much trouble!!!!

  70. John Gilbert John Gilbert says:

    I wonder if they’ll sell coat hangers…

  71. Sharon Adams Sharon Adams says:

    Your actually using “ice cream” for your argument?

  72. Yay! I don’t necessarily agree with all their politics, but I love Hobby Lobby. I will shop there. If everyone refused to shop anywhere owned by someone whose beliefs they disagreed with, I can’t imagine what would be left. Everyone’s entitled to their own beliefs. No point in fighting about it.

  73. They pipe in Christian music. It is the most peaceful atmosphere to shop in. I love it. Its Michaels, beverlys and joannes all in one store. Cant beat that.

  74. Yay!!!! Cannot wait for the opening :-) Love Hobby Lobby <3

  75. Roger Schalkx omg look at what we have here, you were right!! Danielle Britton even closer than Burbank :)

  76. We have one in Colorado and I love the store. Closed Sundays. SCV is lucky to have them.

  77. Sophie Sidky Sophie Sidky says:

    Screw them. On all levels, screw them. I can’t believe anyone would shop at a Hobby Lobby after what they’ve done.

  78. Another foo foo arts and crafts store??? Wtf. What a bummer! Was hoping for something useful. I hope it tanks in the first 6 months.

  79. Nice hobby lobby is dope

  80. Oh! I Like that Store I went to one in Texas, I wish we had one near us, Idon’t think they have in California .

  81. Lisa Marie Lisa Marie says:

    Leah Gusman Torres OMMMGGGGGG!!!!!!!!

  82. Yes, the traffic in that parking lot is bad. However, I just make a point of parking on the outskirts of the parking lot & walking to whichever store I am shopping at. I am looking forward to Hobby Lobby being in SCV!

  83. I love Hobby Lobby, now your need a Kirkland’s!

  84. Can’t wait!!! …..(By the way, did you know they offer their employees 16 different contraceptives to choose from?!!….. Bet you didn’t hear THAT from the news!!!)

  85. Kim Sloan – I looooved Ginsburg’s dissent. She. Was. Pissed! I couldn’t agree more.

  86. Perfect location and size for a hobby lobby

  87. Perfect location and size for a hobby lobby

  89. 4 minutes from my home! Yay.

  90. 4 minutes from my home! Yay.

  91. Happy they are coming in. Beats driving into Burbank. Not surprised it’s at OSH since that is the same building they took over in Burbanks location too. However, it would have been nice to put it up in CC. Maybe where Albertson’s was. Better parking. Or even the mall off the 14 which still has alot of empty space. I know Vallarta is supposedly still going in where Albertson’s was, but we have like every single market here as it is. Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Stater Bros, Vons and another ethnic grocery already. Don’t need another one. It’s nice to have 2 craft stores on opposite ends.

    To my knowledge, Hobby Lobby is privately owned. I don’t believe for one minute this has anything to do with health care. It has everything to so with how much control the government can exert.

    If you want an abortion maybe you should be aborted

  104. Now they need to fix that horrible parking lot!

  105. Wow, angry people! If 16 forms of BC isn’t enough I feel sorry for you. Some people have beliefs and convictions that are just as important as yours. Guess it is your way or nothing. It is called getting along. If you don’t like the fact that people who think differently expect respect. Then don’t work or shop there. Sad to live among such close minded people.

  106. As a taxpayer I don’t want to pay for your abortion. As an employer I wouldn’t want to pay for your abortion. Why do people think everyone owes them everything!

  107. Don’t pay for my abortion, but make sure you pay for pills to help a 65 year-old man have a stiffy.

  108. And as a tax payer, your money doesn’t go to a PRIVATE company that holds their own insurance policy. They have a right to, as a PRIVATE company, do as they please. I just choose not to shop there…ever.

  109. Jennifer, the sad fact is this country makes me pay for things I don’t believe in. I must confess, a lot of my money does in fact go to a private company. I would be pleased to not have you as an employee, or as an individual to shop with. You are a righteous left winger….if every single thing is not handed to you, you will scream discrimination. I bet you don’t even know the definition of “work ethic”.

  118. Sue, name calling? Really? That’s what’s so sad about Facebook. People have differences of opinions and are ok getting nasty to others about it. Such a shame. We are all people with feelings.

  119. Janet Culp Janet Culp says:

    I know your happy Melanie..

  120. Christina White check it out.

  121. Sue, the fact that you make assumptions about my personal beliefs, ethics, political views and/or work habits leads me to believe that you don’t deserve my disdain, but my pity. You know nothing about me. It’s easier to make judgements vs being a compassionate listener. I didn’t call names, nor did I make ANY reference to those who may believe different than I. It’s a craft store, for Pete’s sake. Calm down. And as far as my work ethic, I’ve worked full time since I was 15 & put myself through college taking a full load of courses while working 3 jobs…and I NEVER applied for financial aid.

  122. I am so happy to hear this! I enjoyed shopping there when I lived in Houston! Yay! It’s a great store!

  123. I guess Sue decided to delete all of her awful comments. She took her ball and went home. Oh well. Was hoping for a mature dialogue. Guess not.

    THERE GOES JOANS,MICHEALS AND BERVELYS . SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL CRAFT STORES!!!

  127. Jennifer says:

    I LOVE HOBBY LOBBY! I’m so excited their coming to Santa Clarita! They have a wide span of product lines, and they have fabrics and framing. So we are getting a Joann’s and Michaels all wrapped in one. I’m a crafting junky and love the large selection and quality of products Hobby Lobby offers. I’m also a Christian that would love to work for a company like Hobby Lobby. It would be nice to work for someone that shares your same values.
