Hobby Lobby is a privately held chain of arts and crafts stores headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Owned by David Green, it is notable for its stores closing on Sunday (this also applies to two other chains owned by Green family members, Christian bookstore chain Mardel and furniture chain Hemispheres). It also successfully won the United States Supreme Court case Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores involving Obamacare, where the company (in a close 5–4 vote) was allowed to opt out of the provision requiring contraceptive coverage in its insurance plan, on the basis of its privately held status and the religious views of its owners.
