OKC has an NBA store? Like the one in NYC? Or do you just mean Thunder store?

Pete

It's an NBA store for the Thunder.

Right but I at first had it the "Exclusive to Oklahoma" category. I have since edited the article.

Dick's hasn't been around long, can't remember which city got one first though.

The West Elm store in OKC is already under construction. I didn't list it because I'm sure the two locations will open about the same time.

I understand why you listed the Hemispheres store but having one in OKC first instead of Tulsa is not surprising given that it is one of the Hobby Lobby Green's family businesses.

Yes, but they have 8 locations in Texas and none in Tulsa.

Yes, I know where all of the locations are but this thread is about OKC vs Tulsa and It would certainly be strange for them to not have locations in their home city first. After that I'm sure it's based on market research for the next locations.

According to their web site, they did start in OKC


After years of dreaming and months of planning, Hemispheres made its debut in Oklahoma City on September 4, 2001. Since then, we have opened five (maybe they need to update the site) additional locations in Texas. These are in Allen, Arlington, Cedar Park, Frisco and Lewisville. We also have our newest location in Moore, Oklahoma opening August 2013.

Tulsa still has a Pottery Barn Kids and an Aveda store. Oklahoma City has Half Price Books and Homegoods (in Norman).

Tulsa has Urban Outfitters since I don't think nobody has mentioned it yet. That one seems to be a pretty coveted retailer here in OKC.

Unless I am looking at something else or interpreting it wrong, Natural Grocers website shows 1 store currently open in Norman and 2 open in Tulsa.

Not listed on their website.

Sure this wasn't just a rumor?

Yeah, just looked. No mention of a store in OK at all.

I know almost for certain there was one at one point unless I am really crazy. Maybe they closed it? It was in Utica Square. In fact on Mapquest it gives the address as 1876 Utica Sq Tulsa OK 74114.

Mapquest also shows a Trader Joe's in dowtown Tulsa.

Anyone can add items to that map.


This was just a rumor.

It was a rumor a couple years ago before Anthropologie opened, which is owned by Urban Outfitters. I could see them in Utica Square but I don't think there are currently any vacant spaces large enough. West Elm is taking a space that was occupied by Pier 1. The last area they have to expand is the southeast corner parking lot, or where the bank is by Saks.

Definitely no urban outfitters in Tulsa. I'm up there 3 or 4 times a month and hangout in all the urban districts, haven't see one. They have a few very small stores similar to Urban outfitters, but they aren't any different then some of the smaller boutique stores that have popped up in AA and the plaza.

Alamo Drafthouse???

What about it?

Neither city has one and no firm plans have been revealed.

BG918
04-30-2014, 08:26 PM
Alamo Drafthouse is expanding outside of Texas. They have locations in Denver (with a second one planned) and Kansas City. That or a Landmark theater would be nice additions in OKC and Tulsa. You could actually add the Warren Theatre to the OKC list (Moore counts right ?). Tulsa won't have one until this fall, in Broken Arrow.

Isn't Nordstrom supposedly opening a dept. store at Woodland hills mall in Tulsa?

There's a Nordstrom Rack going into Woodland Plaza. It may have already opened; I'm not sure, though.

I thought I read on TN that Alamo Drafthouse is seriously looking at Tulsa?

Not sure if Maserati has ever been here before or if there is one in Tulsa, but as far as I know this is first one so might want to add that to OKC's list.

No they don't. I think they are supposed to be getting one but they don't have it yet.

Is Tulsa getting WinCo?

Plutonic Panda

I heard the same people who built the outlet mall were considering one in Tulsa.

B Chris, Pete said they were actively scouting locations for Tulsa as well.
