Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. is set to open a new store in the Cumberland area.

Construction is underway on this existing 59,000 square-foot building that was formerly occupied by Toys “R” Us at Cobb Parkway and Akers Mill Road.

Hobby Lobby currently has 43 locations in Georgia. The new store is projected to open in mid-April and bring about 35 to 50 jobs to the community.

The company has over 800 stores across the nation. Each store offers more than 70,000 crafting and home decor products including floral, fabric, needle art, custom framing, baskets, home accents, wearable art, arts and crafts, jewelry making, scrapbooking and paper crafting supplies. Store hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and closed on Sunday.
