New look for longtime retail center

Posted: Updated:

Lawton_Some big changes are coming to Cache Road Square.

Although the Furr's Restaurant closed last month, several new business and restaurants are coming to the 62-year-old center.  Cache Road Square Property Manager Stan Booker says the goal is to bring more "big-name" businesses, like Planet Fitness, to the Square. He says the new stores and restaurants will meet the growing demand for more choices for both local and regional consumers.

"That need is met now by going out of town and spending those dollars out of town.  Then, the city doesn't get the sales tax. Anytime we can have those businesses here, people spend their money locally. We don't have that gap. It also will create the more regional shopping center we can become," Booker said.

Booker said they already have plans for the now vacant Furr's Restaurant, and hope to replace it with more than one tenant.

"Restaurants just aren't that big anymore. It's almost 12,000 square feet. What we'd like to get is maybe two, maybe three, smaller stores, maybe like a sandwich shop, and that's what we're marketing it for is to divide it, bring in some name brands, and do a complete remodel. It won't look anything like it looks now," Booker said.

The names of the new businesses that are coming to the Square have not been disclosed.
