November Forum to focus on health of OKC retail ahead of holidays

Friday, November 5, 2021

Thanksgiving may be just a couple weeks away, but many local retailers are already getting into the Christmas spirit as they prepare for yet another holiday shopping season. Last fall, Oklahoma City businesses were still reeling from the pandemic, but many have since rebounded and are trying to limit any other ill-effects the lingering pandemic may throw their way.


The current state of Oklahoma City’s retail industry, especially as it heads into the holiday shopping season, will be examined during a panel discussion as part of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber’s upcoming forum Nov. 17 at Vast. Industry representatives from various retail entities and organizations will provide their individual thoughts, ideas and insights regarding OKC’s retail sector. Participants will include:

  • Daniel McLoud, Owner, TRADE Supply Co.
  • Shane McWhorter, General Manager, Washington Prime Group
  • Jim Parrack, Senior Vice President, Price Edwards & Company
  • Cléo Rajon, Executive Director, Independent Shopkeepers Association
