Atwoods Ranch & Home store has now opened in Yukon.
A ribbon-cutting, with members of Yukon’s Chamber of Commerce and city leaders, was a few hours after the store opened at 7 a.m. Wednesday, May 5. Yukon store manager Gregg Sparks cut the red ribbon in front of the store, 1670 Shedeck Circle with Atwoods President Brian Atwood standing beside him.
The store has served homeowners, ranchers, and hobby farmers for the past 61 years, according to a news release from Atwoods, based in Enid.
“We’re Oklahoma-owned and operated and we’re glad to be in Yukon,” Brian Atwood said at the ceremony. “We’re based in Enid and we are out in the state a lot and we are glad to find another spot in Oklahoma. We like to think we have the friendliest place in town. We have a team here ready to move. If you ever have a problem call or ask, and we are tickled to be here.”
Atwoods offers nationally-known name brands alongside assortments of items “seldom found anywhere else. It has a fun, friendly, and somewhat nostalgic atmosphere with a reputation for everyday low prices.”
“We’re extremely excited about the opportunity in Yukon,” Brian Atwood added. “It’s a great location and we’ve really been encouraged by the amount of customers anxious for us to open our doors.” Grand opening events included a five-day sale, giveaway items, and daily deals that are sure to give customers a reason to come in day after day.
Although known as a company with strong ties to its farming roots, Atwoods expansive and diverse product offering make it as equally appealing to the urban homeowner as it is to farmers and ranchers. Atwoods is an Oklahoma-based company, owned and operated by the Atwood family, and has been since its founding in 1960.
What began as a small single store has grown into 66 large-format stores with locations in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri.
“Our focus is solely on the customer,” said Atwood. “Whether you’re shopping for garden hose, fertilizer, boots, jeans, dog food, baby chicks, a lawn mower, or just about anything else; ATWOODS has it and we have it for less.”
