Customers and consigners.
If Catherine Jones, owner of Grand Uptown Resale and Consignment in Grove, had to list the reasons her store was named one of the best consignment shops in Oklahoma it would center around two words: customers and consigners.
“We have consigners that travel here from Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas, plus a large following here in Oklahoma,” Jones said.
Recently, Grand Uptown was voted the sixth best consignment shop out of 11, on the “Best Things in Oklahoma” listing at bestthingsok.com/consignment-shops.
“This consignment store in the Grand Lake area offers more opportunity for your clothes to sell,” wrote list author Dawn Brotherton. “You’ll also find some great fashion deals, whether you’re looking for clothing, accessories or coats.”
Jones said she’s very proud to receive the award, adding she believes it’s a “great accomplishment” for both the store and retailers within the Grove area.
Jones has operated Grand Uptown for 12-1/2 years. They decided to move to the Grove area when looking for a place to retire near the lake.
“We have won ‘The Best of the Best’ the last two years in a row and this is like icing on the cake for us,” Jones said. “We hope to have many more years serving the Grove area. We love the people and the area.
“Thanks to everyone and our staff for making us one of the best places in Oklahoma to shop for all your clothing needs.”
Grand Uptown’s sister company, Uptown Resale Consignments in Broken Arrow also appears on the list as number four. That store has been open for 26 years.
Other stores appearing on the list include stores in Tulsa, Edmond and Oklahoma City.
