Hobby Lobby is the largest privately owned arts and crafts retailer in the world. Headquartered in Oklahoma City, Hobby Lobby employs approximately 20,000 people companywide and operates approximately 520 stores in 42 states. Hobby Lobby sales for 2012 totaled more than $3 billion....
I recommend David Green's great little book, "More than a Hobby" about how they got the store started. Interesting that they close, not only on Sundays, but also at 8pm to allow their employees a chance to have a family life.
