Hobby Lobby, set to open Aug. 7 in Bluffton, has extended its hiring event through next week.
Interested candidates can apply in person at the Holiday Inn Express at 35 Bluffton Road Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Bob Miller, Hobby Lobby Communications Coordinator, said Friday.
The craft store started taking applications through an event on July 3. The hiring event was planned to end on July 7.
“We have learned that it is necessary to adjust our hiring information to reach out to surrounding communities,” Miller said when asked about the hiring extension. “We are still looking forward to being a part of the community and helping our Bluffton customers live a creative life.”
