Supercenters Open in Bixby, Tulsa

Two new Wal-Mart Supercenters have opened in the Tulsa area.
The stores are at 6625 S. Memorial Drive, north of Woodland Hills Mall and 10938 S. Memorial Drive in Bixby.
The Woodland Hills Mall location is the test store for a new toy department concept, which features a playhouse with a 42-inch television and interactive games.
The new Bixby store features a fa?ade unlike other super centers in the Tulsa area. The “multiple storefront” exterior features gabled roofs, awnings, stucco and brick.
Both 203,818 SF stores feature prototype flat-screen TVs, suspended over each aisle that will serve as “navigational” signage, expanded electronics center, Tire & Lube Express, a fully enclosed lawn and garden center, a Wal-Mart Connect Center for wireless phone sales and a branch of City National Bank.
The stores will bring about 470 new jobs to the Tulsa area. Wal-Mart employs more than 30,000 in Oklahoma through 57 SuperCenters, 26 Wal-Mart Discount Stores, 15 Neighborhood Markets, eight Sam’s Clubs and two distribution centers.
Wal-Mart collected more than $424.9 million in sales tax and paid more than $16.5 million in state and local taxes in the 2006 fiscal year that ended Jan. 31.
