A Store in Tulsa's Oldest Shopping Center Celebrates 50 Years in Business

Oct 10, 2012

One of the oldest stores in Tulsa’s oldest shopping center marks a milestone. The Russell Stover Candies Store is celebrating the start of its 50th year in business in Utica Square. Vice-President of Retail for Stover, Angela Ellsworth, says it is unusual for a store to be in business in the same location for five decades…but, she says it’s a unique store. She believes the exclusive, handcrafted specialty items like gourmet cupcakes and chocolate dipped strawberries are the big draw.

The Tulsa retail store is the oldest still in business in the Stover chain. It’s recently undergone a renovation.
