Hobbycraft Grand Opening

Hobbycraft, the UK’s largest arts and crafts retailer, celebrated the opening of its new store at A1 Retail Park, Biggleswade on Saturday with a host of crafting activities, product offers and goody bags for the first 100 customers who walked through the doors.

The store officially opened on Tuesday 7th June, whilst the grand store opening event took place on Saturday 11th June at 9.00am, attended by the Mayor of Biggleswade, Councillor Grant Fage and Councillor Mark Foster from Central Bedfordshire Council.

The new Hobbycraft store will offer customers the retailers’ extensive range of crafting products from art, baking, home craft, papercraft, knitting, sewing, kids’ crafts and model making, to accessories for weddings, celebrations and much more.

Hobbycraft Biggleswade, based at A1 Retail Park, has created 14 new jobs in the local area. These roles have offered the Biggleswade community the opportunity to work for the Best Big Company to work for in the UK, an accolade that Hobbycraft were awarded in May 2022 by Best Companies.

The Town Council welcomes Hobbycraft to Biggleswade and thanks them for investing in our town.
