Hobby Lobby has resumed business in several places, including the only location in Lincoln. The hours have adjusted, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

They have also reserved 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. for customers who are at-risk or over the age of 60.

In the beginning of April, Hobby Lobby closed all of its stores in the U.S. after the craft supplies company received backlash for staying open in at least one state amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In the company’s statement announcing it would close, it appeared to defend its previous decision to remain open.

“We know our customers relied on us to provide essential products, including materials to make personal protective equipment, such as face masks, educational supplies for the countless parents who are now educating their children from home, and the thousands of small arts and crafts businesses who rely on us for supplies to make their products,” according to the statement.

The company also detailed the measures it took to provide a safer shopping environment, including installing physical barriers between customers and cashiers.
