Hobby Lobby said in a July 15 news release that despite rumors on social media and in an online article continually redistributed, the company’s founder and CEO David Green is not closing stores.

The popular arts and crafts retail chain, in the news most recently for its forfeiture of thousands of ancient artifacts from Iraq, has been targeted by inaccurate reports that include republishing a letter Green wrote in 2012.

In fact, Hobby Lobby “is experiencing tremendous growth” and anticipates opening 50 new stores in 2017 – with plans for more in the future, according to the release.

“Hobby Lobby often hears from concerned customers who have read on social media that the company is closing its doors,” the release said, after the latest round of “fake news.”


Green had said in the open letter said he might close all stores – then 500 in 41 states – because of what he called religious persecution by the Obama administration following a battle with the government over the Affordable Care Act.

The family-owned business in 2014 won a lawsuit it filed objecting to having to provide abortion-causing drugs to its employees as a result of the healthcare mandate.
