The new store in nearby mall Destiny USA was calling my dear wife Karen’s name.
Yes, of course we’ll take our first trip inside Hobby Lobby.
Michael’s, a fantastic store to fuel her passions — and a place I liked to roam the aisles with her — has closed its Destiny USA doors in the COVID-19 live shopping complex revolving door.
After our six-people in the theater movie date for a matinee showing of Licorice Pizza — you remember going to the movies, right?! — and a fruitless search to secure me some late-winter-season shoes, we took the inside route.
Hobby Lobby was jam-packed with stuff.
I found it much more intimidating to wander than Michael’s.
Karen found her fabric markers, after asking a kind worker to help point out the right aisle out of what seemed to me to be at least 100.
For my needs, I’m glad there’s a stand-alone Michael’s still, up on Erie Boulevard, just a handful of miles away.
