Reasor's To Close South B.A. Store


The Reasor’s Supermarket store in south Broken Arrow is closing. The store at 101st South and 161st East Avenue is the latest business in that are to go out. The company says the store is too small.

At one time,  a Kmart, Albertson, Homeland, Anthony’s, Drug Warehouse and movie theatres were on that corner.

Michael Spurgeon, Broken Arrow City Manager: City administrators today learned of the business decision made by Reasor’s Grocery stores to close its location near Elm and New Orleans in south Broken Arrow by the end of April. While we are not necessarily surprised by the company’s decision, we are extremely disappointed to hear the announcement. “City staff has been in constant communication with Mr. Reasor and his company for the last year regarding this location. In these discussions, the City would have considered possible incentives to keep the store open. However, Mr. Reasor conveyed that the size of the space simply no longer works for their store model, and they made a business decision not to put money into a building (which Reasor’s does not own) that does not meet their needs “We will continue to work with Reasor’s to find a suitable location in the southern part of Broken Arrow so that our residents can continue to buy their groceries conveniently. “Today’s disappointing news does not detract from the City’s ongoing commitment to the revitalization of the Elm and New Orleans corridor. Our consultant-led study into ideas for revitalization continues and a report will be available in the coming months. We are excited about what the future of this intersection may hold.”
