Hobby Lobby: On with Jobs Hiring and Store Expansions Amid Legal Battle

Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., the embattled arts and crafts retail giant, standing firmly on its Christian beliefs that ground their corporate mission, has grown big since its first store opening in 1972, and continues to expand with more store openings and provide jobs to many despite the legal challenge it faces with regards to its opposition to some parts of the Affordable Care Act.
