Arts and craft chain-store Hobby Lobby could be moving into the former Toys R Us building in Santa Maria.
Public Information Manager for the City of Santa Maria Mark Van de Kamp confirmed that the store has submitted plans to move in into the vacated space. He said they submitted their plans in early April.
Hobby Lobby is mainly an arts and crafts store but they also sell products for jewelry making, picture framing, fabrics, floral and wedding supplies, party supplies and holiday décor.
The vacated Toys R Us building is located on 1411 S. Bradley Road. The building has been empty since the company Toys R Us closed all of its stores nation-wide last June.
