Woodbury Corporation Brings First-ever Hobby Lobby, Olive Garden to Twin Falls, Idaho

February 20, 2018

Both Highly-Anticipated Businesses Will Be Located at Magic Valley Mall, and Are Expected to Open in the Fall

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (February 20, 2018) – Woodbury Corporation, a full-service real estate management and development company, today announced that it has finalized plans to bring two high-profile businesses, Hobby Lobby and Olive Garden, to Magic Valley Mall. This marks the first time either business will have a presence in the Twin Falls market.

Hobby Lobby is the world’s largest privately-owned home décor and crafts retailer, operating over 800 stores across the nation. At Magic Valley Mall the retailer will be taking over the former Macy’s building on the west side of the mall. The approximately 60,000 square foot store will offer shoppers more than 70,000 crafting and home decor products.

“Hobby Lobby is always looking for new locations to better serve our customers,” said Bob Miller, communications coordinator for Hobby Lobby. “With the positive response we’ve received in our four Idaho stores, we believe this will be an excellent location. We look forward to being a part of the community and helping our Twin Falls customers live a creative life.”

The Olive Garden, a casual dining restaurant chain specializing in Italian-American cuisine, is the world’s largest company-owned and operated full-service restaurant company. Once completed, the restaurant will be approximately 7,000 square feet, and will be located near the Locust Street entrance on Pole Line Road, right across from Magic Valley Cinema 13.

“It is very exciting to be introducing these two businesses to the Twin Falls community,” said Randy Woodbury, president of Woodbury Corporation. “Hobby Lobby offers people a great opportunity to explore their creative passions. And for the past 20 years, local residents have routinely put Olive Garden at the top of the list of most-desired businesses, so we know they’ll be thrilled to have both of these businesses finally be so close to home.”

It is anticipated that both stores will open their doors later this year in the fall.
