My Love Affair with Hobby Lobby is OVER!
I went to a HL last week and what do I see on the door? But a sign informing me that they "reserve the right to search anyone"!!!!!!!!! EXCUUUUUUUUUSE ME?!?!?

I have nothing to hide and they definitely have a right to search someone they have evidence of stealing once they are in the store.........but to be subjected to arbitrary searches at their whim???????????????????

I think not! I have a good mind to send them a letter letting them know I have a right to go buy my yarn and art supplies at Michael's!


Just venting!

I hope they meant search any bags you are carrying.

How very unfriendly.

Mine has that sign too. Must have a lot of trouble with shrinkage.

Oh, that is a shame that a store has such a theft problem that they have to search people. I wonder if they have the option of installing those loud-screechy-beepy things at the exits that can detect a product being heisted. (I hope you know what I mean, they are at places like Target and other stores too.)

Personally...(I do love some things at hobby lobby), but the store kind of pisses me off. Some of the yarn they have is priced differently (FOR THE SAME EXACT YARN!), and they don't have the scanners at the cash registers...hello, it's 2007! I think it's kind of scammish. Have the same yarn with different prices...no scanners..easy to get away with it. Be sure to check for the lowest priced yarn if you buy it!

First of all, ain't nobody searching my purse for no reason! If the cops need probably cause, then so does Hobby Lobby!

If they mean the bags with stuff I've purchased at HL (and am on my way out the door), same thing goes! Once I've paid my hard earned money for it, it MY property and without probable cause (that is, me on a security camera sticking things in my purse - which, of course, I would never do), then they better keep their hands off!

Don't mess with Texans...........even immigrant ones

I do wish that the stores in general would get an upgrade. I love going to mine but the store is old and kind of icky. And they are deficient on the scanning technology too.

Sometimes, you have to spend money to make money .. more people will want to go to a nicer store!!!!

I think the sign is worded poorly. I would hope they mean they will search someone IF they have reason to, like if someone was observed acting suspiciously, and not just because you're wearing green today.

I go there alot when the needles go on 50% off...and I admit, Im sure I annoy the piss out of them, but I hover and make for SURE they discount me. They've messed up my totals before.
