Grand Forks will be getting a Hobby Lobby big box store near 32nd Avenue South, according to plans submitted to the city Planning Department earlier this month.

The site plans for the project show a 55,000 square-foot store to be built just west of South 31st Street on the south side of 32nd Avenue. The store’s lot is 183,885 square feet and would have 242 parking spaces.

The project has yet to be approved by planning staff but it has received zoning and platting approval and will not require any further public hearings, said Grand Forks Senior Planner Ryan Brooks.

Hobby Lobby is a national chain based in Oklahoma City and has 525 stores in 42 states, according to its website. The nearest location is in Fargo, and there are also stores in Bismarck, Minot and Duluth.

Its stores offer 60,000 items in crafts, art supplies, jewelry, home decoration, fashion accessories, floral items, party supplies and other products.
