Where is the boom? We have 2 major resturants one is Sonic the other is Mazzio's. And we should not forget about our only grocery store that is way over priced because we have no other choice,unless you want to drive to tri-city or Norman. Yes we need to grow, but unless we can get more business to build here this is proably as good as it can get,which is not saying much.

We have the same problem in Piedmont. We are finally getting a grocery store but have few businesses. Our streets are terrible because there is really no tax base. Lots of people moving out here but it doesn't seem like we are a business friendly community.
