NEW BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT: Private club, gift shop, more join the business scene | news


Local residents of the area will soon be able to visit several recently opened shops in and around the city.

With its pre-opening scheduled for this Friday 23rd September, JC’s is a private club with membership required after 1pm

“We serve breakfast and lunch from 7am to 1pm. In addition to our menu, we also offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet,” said Office Manager Joie Dodge. “At 1pm we are changing our menu to a members-only menu.”

Dodge said JC’s Club members will enjoy exclusive benefits.

“We have 14 screens where we show games on Sundays and Mondays. We’ll be doing different events throughout the week, like karaoke, quiz nights, girls nights,” she said. “We have a DJ on the team. We plan to have bands every Friday and Saturday night.”

The grand opening of JC will take place on October 7th-8th.

Atta Girl is a new Keys store owned by Lynda Starzman, Joyce Rucker, Tracy Bloom and Store Manager Lauren Adams.

“We all have different talents and we brought them together [for Atta Girl]’ Bloom said.

Bloom said the store offers home decor, refurbished furniture and gifts.

“We sell in-store and off-Facebook,” Bloom said.

The store was officially opened on September 17th and is open every day except Wednesday.

After closing several nights early last month to work on renovations, Save A Lot will have its grand reopening on September 27th.

“We’ve put new floors, painted inside and out, we’ve got new decor and will hopefully have new exterior signs installed by September 27,” she said.

Taylor said the store also upgraded some of the lighting to LEDs and added new digital window signs.

“Our staff worked so hard to make this happen and we were so pleased with the contractors who painted and installed the floor,” she said. “Save A Lot has been a part of Tahlequah for many years and we know customers are excited to see all the upgrades.”

Tahlequah resident Gabrielle Perry works from her “virtual office” and is the owner and CEO of New Business Grants by Gabrielle.

“I’m a grant writing consultant,” Perry said.

Perry opened her shop on Aug. 13 and said she offers a variety of services, including helping clients with applications for foundations and nonprofits, as well as peer-reviewed grants.

Perry said she can meet her clients at various public places in the area, as well as at her offices.
