    A large crowd applauded and cheered Monday as the doors opened on a new Hobby Lobby in San Diego County.

    The craft and home décor retail chain opened its location on North 4th Avenue in Chula Vista.

    Store manager Mark Whitney described the store as “supersized” with a lot of seasonal and crafting items as well as a phenomenal staff.

    Shopper Latoya Neely wanted to look for decorations for her children’s rooms and her living room.

    “I love it. I’m so happy that it’s right here,” the Chula Vista resident said.

    Another local, Debbie Vigil, said she was picking up some necessities for Thanksgiving. She said she appreciates the variety of items and the prices.

    There are more than 700 stores in the U.S. but this is the second location in San Diego County.
