What makes OKC a prime place for retailers? It could be that we continue to have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the entire country for major metropolitan areas. Or it could be our low cost of living which for us at Better Life headquarters simply means more money for shopping. One thing is for certain, retailers love OKC and we, of course, love the steady stream of new shopping and dining options.
