A ribbon is cut marking the grand opening of Sharpe’s Department Store along Route 66 at Chrystal City Shopping Center. It’s been 40 years for a department store of this type to be located in the historic shopping center. Store owner Logan Sharpe is proud to be part of the renaissance. He says the West Tulsa area has a welcoming, small town feel.                                    

Over the past 100 years, Sharpe’s has mostly served shoppers in rural areas. The company now has 24 stores, with the majority in rural Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
