The Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby is scheduled to open its new location in the Northway Plaza in mid April, according to the company’s website.

Spokesman Vincent Parker said in an email to The Post Star the stores typically hire 30 to 50 local employees and will train a store manager and co-manager in another store.

A quick Google search revealed a job listing for a co-manager at the Queensbury site, but there were no listings posted on the company's website.

Parker said about three to four weeks before the store opens, the company will place an ad in the classifieds.

Hourly wages start at $14 for full-time employees and $9.50 for part-timers.

Various positions include cashiers, stockers, custom picture framers, an office manager, floral designer and "department heads" for different areas of the store.

The chain, owned by the Green family, has 588 stores nationwide and is planning to open a Rutland, Vt., store in late March.

The arts and craft chain has been making national headlines with its U.S. Supreme Court case, Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., set for the Supreme Court’s June term.

The Affordable Care Act forces companies that provide insurance to give their employees access to cost-free contraceptives. Hobby Lobby objects to four of the list of 20 contraceptives, saying those four can trigger abortions, which the Green family says contradicts their Christian values.

    I'm glad to see a bit of background on Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and its federal lawsuit.

    A quibble: I think the word "requires" rather than "forces" would have been a more neutral choice in referencing the Affordable Care Act. But I'd imagine that the Green family might prefer "forces."
