Thread: Russell Stover

  1. #1

    Default Russell Stover

    The Russell Stover sign says the store is closed. Was it he wrong location for that type of store? Is this the first of the new construction to close?

    Can we park there to eat at Buffalo now? Or are we going to risk getting towed?

    it was a neat little store, but common, a store that tries to sell almost everything candy and lot of times it stuff you find at walmart for the same price...

  4. Default Re: Russell Stover

    Sign says the store closed on June 21, if I recall correctly. We went in there a few times, but primarily only at Christmastime, and I always thought it was a tough sell the rest of the year...

    That was just a bad location for that type of store. They should have built in Norman off Ed Noble or near OU. OU Students alone would have kept the place in business with coffee and ice cream sales.

    if maybe, they advertised that they sold ice cream and special drinks they might of had a go of it, the ice cream was pretty good, thats the only reason my wife and kids went those couple of times..

    We never went there until one day we stopped in before Halloween and saw that they had ice cream, who knew! The did a terrbile job of letting people know all that the offered. hopefully someone can move in the and do a better job of marketing themselves.

    doubt it...Crimson Ice Creamery in campus corner had a similar concept (coffee and ice cream) and still closed pretty quick.

    I spoke to a Russell Stover representative today and was told that indeed, Henry Hudsons has bought the building and land. Russell Stover owned the land and structure, and Henry Hudsons offered them too much to pass. She said that RS had been making a profit for the past 2 years, but were just offered too much money. They are apparently looking for another place in that area to build.

    Interesting...Gone from practically no bars in Moore to 4 now(?) with Louie's also going in...Good thing is the bars will have to have some solid happy hour pricing to compete with Hudson's 30 watered down beers for $10

    Wild Wings and McGuinness will certainly be affected by a HH and a Louie's coming into town

    Russell Stover should look into leasing space in the shopping center by Alfredo's, rather than building new, again. I think the overhead would be lower.

    well the store at north may has a continuous empty parking lot. why in the world would they build another one in moore??

  18. #18

    Default Re: Russell Stover

    because as yukong mentioned, they were making a profit

    It depends, they evidently made a pretty good profit investing in their own location or else they wouldn't have sold out to Hudson's.

    It is the type of businees where people are in/out in a hurry, cars don't stay in the lot very long. They may have a pretty hefty call-in business much like a florist shop.

    I heard the other day that this building was actually going to become an Old Chicago rather than a Hudson's. This came from my mortgage rep who says that she is on the Chamber of Commerce.

    She also mentioned that Moore would be getting either a Red Lobster or an Olive Garden. I can't stand Olive Garden, so I'm hoping for the Red Lobster.

    Old Chicago sounds reasonable since they bought out Pearls to nab their southside location...I would much rather have an Old Chicago

    Yeah, I love Old Chicago, but I *hate* that former Pearl's location. It's just too small and claustrophobic. Most folks may not remember that space started out as a taco stand about 20 years ago...and its still the same width :smiley

    Was that Pearl's a Two Pesos?

    Default Re: Russell Stover

    Yes it was

  25. Default Re: Russell Stover

    Hmmmm...I can't help but wonder if Old Chicago is, in fact, heading into that former Russell Stover's location, would that suggest the I-240 location may be moving? Or will both continue to opearte??

    I know, idle speculation at this point, but I can't help but wonder..
