Hobby Lobby, a national retail chain of arts and crafts stores, will soon be seen on Duluth's Miller Hill.

Hobby Lobby Spokesperson Vincent Parker says in a press release that the company has a signed a lease and construction is currently underway on the 59,800 square foot building that was previously occupied by Kmart.

It will be Hobby Lobby's third store in Minnesota and is expected to open in early 2013.

The craft store is expected to bring between 35 and 50 jobs to the Northland, paying $13 per hour for full time, and $9 per hour for part-time associates.
