The doors are soon to open on Yukon’s latest farm and ranch supply store.
Atwoods Ranch and Home on West End Pointe Drive in southwest Yukon is nearly completed, about nine months after the ground-breaking.
An opening date had not been announced Friday.
The new store is 63,000 square feet on a 6-acre site on West End Pointe Drive between Okie Express Auto Wash and Avid Hotel.
Atwoods Ranch and Home is a farm and ranch supply company based in Enid.
Atwoods has 64 stores in five states, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.
Almost half of the stores are in Oklahoma.
In addition to farm and ranch supplies, Atwoods stores sell clothing, lawn and garden items, tools, hardware, automotive supplies, sporting goods, pet supplies, firearms, and seasonal items.
In 2020, the new site is expected to be in a good location, said Chad Arnold, director of real estate and marketing for McGee Commercial Real Estate when the new store was announced..
“We’ve been working with Atwoods for six months to get this across the goal line. Also, we can’t thank the City (of Yukon) enough for working with us. Just being a lot of rural areas around, I think it’s just a natural fit for (Atwoods) – especially being right off I-40. I think they’re going to do really well.”
McGee Real Estate Services L.L.C. has developed the property north of N.W. 10th Street and east of West End Pointe Drive.
