Internet stories rumored that Hobby Lobby was closing all stores across the nation. Many people saw the headlines that spread like Wyoming wildfire.

The story on Hobby Lobby is that they are not closing, especially not on Lincolnway in Cheyenne, or on East 2nd Street in Casper.

The report is false. Hobby Lobby is not closing stores. In fact, the company opens 50 new stores in 2016, and plans to open at least 50 more in 2017. The company looks forward to many years.

I guess this isn’t a shock, since we’ve been told not to believe everything on the internet. The truth is not bad news for Hobby Lobby, despite the political comment in a story like this one, if it's still up after it turned out to be a "story".
