Riverwalk in Jenks is good, really anywhere in the Jenks school district would eat up what you are selling. Way too many stay at home bored moms with way too much money. That area or anywhere by Utica Square and you would kill with anything holistic, organic, natural. Charge more than you think you should too.

The Riverwalk in Jenks is a ghost town! I've seen so many businesses die in that shopping center. It was a great idea, but it just didnt work out. If you want to start a wellness type business, I'd recommend Brookside, Cherry Street, or downtown all in Tulsa. Much better areas, all very hip and up and coming areas where a business like that would flourish. In downtown you want to stick to one of the arts or cultural districts, most on the north side of the downtown area.


Good luck!

I was just at Utica Square a few weeks ago. Lots of high end joints. I'm guessin' the rent in that area would be exorbitant.

Oh Lord, yes. That's why I suggest staying in a more hip and young area. Utica Square is the most 'hoity toity' area of Tulsa.

You don't think the $350 million casino, the Simon outlet mall and the huge golf facility are going to change that?

The center itself isn't full right now, but it's going to be. And aside from that specific center I stand by the demographics of the Jenks area. The 74037 and 74137 zip codes are among the wealthiest in the state.

Well, maybe, but that's what they said about the Riverwalk too. I just think a Wellness Center is more suited for a more hip, trendy and interurban area. Not a suburb like Jenks.

That is not correct. There is always activity every time I am there.

They also have a ton of high-profile projects that are under-construction and many more planned. Pretty soon, the whole river will be connected so I wouldn't discount it.

I would choose Tulsa. It is a wealthy city, so people can afford natural health care.

OKC gets more tornadoes, and Tulsa is in the Green Country. It is far way the prettier city.
