Your Chamber in the NEWS: Ware On C

Posted by: Communications Manager on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 12:00:00 am Comments (0)

Downtown Lawton was dealt a heavy blow when much of the area was demolished in the 1970s as part of urban renewal. The goal was to redevelop what critics complained had become a seedy bar district into a place that families could meet and shop.

But now the Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce and downtown businesses are launching a new effort to breathe life into downtown. The Ware District comprises a swath of the central business district stretching from Elmer Thomas Park to Central Mall, from east of Railroad Street to City Hall. That’s a huge area, so the initial effort will be along C Avenue from Southwest 2nd Street to Southwest 7th. The first event, on Thursday, will be between 4th and 5th Streets.

About Cache Road Liquor & Wine:

Cache Road Discount Liquor and Wine is owned by JP Richard and is one of the biggest liquor stores in Oklahoma. We really pride ourselves on trying to have lowest prices, best service, and widest selection in the area. We have a great staff of employees that is always willing to help; we're also a bunch of sarcastic, still 14-year-old kids that tend to have fun at work and try to make your shopping that much more fun. As we say, the booze costs money but the show is free (which is good because we probably wouldn't get paid for most of our attempts at humor). The most recent expansion of Cache Road Discount Liquor and Wines was completed in May of 1998. The 12,500 sq. feet of floor space makes Cache Road Liquor and Wines the largest liquor store between OKC and Dallas. The business has steadily grown since 1959. J.P. Richard and Bill Doolin purchased the business in 1974 and Doolin stayed on as an equal partner till 1980. In 1978 they expanded the original building to 5,000 sq. feet and in 1985 J.P. enlarged it to 8,000. The most noticeable change, and what a lot of people still call us by, came in 1987 when J.P. built the Tunnel next door to the liquor store.
