Explanation:
It's almost covered by "DIY store", at least in the UK, but this might work if you really need to give it a separate name. The problem is that there aren't really many "große" hobby stores (but maybe that's different in the US?).

Oops - take an \"s\" off the end of stores and another off of shops. (I was reading your text with the plurals \"Bau- und Hobbymärkte\" whzen I wrote that.)
