Yukon’s busy retail corridor is getting ready to get a little busier as the city prepares to welcome some new businesses.

While much development has been occurring on the outskirts of Yukon in Oklahoma City limits, City of Yukon officials proudly shared details about new stores coming just north of 10th Street – in Yukon’s city limits.

“These will be a great asset to our future tax revenue,” Yukon Mayor Shelli Selby said of coming Yukon businesses.

“We welcome them to our community and look forward to a great working relationship. I want to remind Yukon residents to ‘shop local’.”

Chief among them is Mardel Christian & Education, which is nearing completion on a 25,139-square-foot book and education supply store at 1707 Garth Brooks Boulevard.

A new commercial construction building permit was issued in October 2022 for Yukon’s Mardel.

The free-standing store will open between Kohl’s department store and Staples office supply store on the east side of Garth Brooks Boulevard in the West End Pointe development.

Project cost is $3 million.



Another new commercial construction project on the east side of Garth Brooks Boulevard is just getting underway.

7Brew will build a new 1,447-square-foot, drive-thru coffee store at 1617 Garth Brooks Blvd. The building permit was issued in June.

Project cost is $650,000.

A new bakery is coming to an existing, renovated space across the street on the west side of Garth Brooks Boulevard.

Yukon’s own Crumbl Cookies will open a gourmet cookie and ice cream store inside the shopping center at 1680 Garth Brooks Boulevard in front of Target.

This dessert business will be north of Great Clips and Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers.

On the north side of Interstate 40, a new business is coming to the Yukon Angle development.

HTeaO has constructed a new 2,283-square-foot building for its fresh-brewed tea store at 1000 Garth Brooks Boulevard, directly south of the Yukon Post Office.

A new commercial construction building permit was issued in November 2022.

Project cost is $950,000.

On the east side of Yukon, developer John Nail Jr.’s upscale Stone Mill Plaza shopping center has filled to capacity.

Popular additions include Krell’s East Coast Delicatessen, Panang 9 Thai Restaurant and Twisted Axes Throw House.
