MENTOR, Ohio  — Hobby Lobby has decided to close their Ohio stores after Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost sent them a cease and desist letter.

Hobby Lobby originally closed on March 21 when the stay-at-home order was put in place.

They reopened on Wednesday after claiming to be an essential business.

Yost sent them a letter Wednesday night and the retail chain decided to close all Ohio stores beginning on Thursday.
