Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: Core Norman, 2017: Photo 40

world pictures Oklahoma: Core Norman, 2017

The best-known store on campus corner is gone, however. Harold Powell's parents had run Sooner Drug on campus corner since 1927, and after World War II Harold opened a men's store right here in 1948; a decade later he added women's clothing. The operation grew to 40-odd stores, 1,800 employees, and revenues of $150 million. New investors were needed, and they arrived in 2001. They insisted on shifting from classic to trendier lines. Bad move: the chain was liquidated in 2008. Powell had his own summary observation: "A lot of success is just about luck and timing. The same with failure." (See Brianna Bailey in The Oklahoman, 20 July 2014.)
