Sand Springs celebrates Grand Opening of new Stage department store

Stage Stores, Inc. opened a new facility in Sand Springs Thursday morning, relocating an existing Stage department store a mere thousand feet across the street from its previous location. Formerly in a storefront at the Atwoods Plaza, the new Stage has expanded to a 14,000 square-foot facility at 651 East Charles Page Boulevard. 

Stage carries hundreds of brands, including Adidas, Chaps, Converse, Dockers, Levi's, Skechers, U.S. Polo Assn., Vanity Fair, Lee, and Tommy Hilfiger.

To celebrate the Grand Opening, the store held a ribbon-cutting ceremony with City, Corporate, and Chamber of Commerce officials, and gave away gift cards to the first 100 customers. Free tote bags and donuts were given away and 25% off coupons were available upon checkout. 

Former the site of May's Drug Warehouse, the new facility is far larger than Stage's previous location and is a standalone building that will be wholly occupied by its new tenants. The building has been unoccupied for several years. 

The new building is located immediately south of the Sand Springs Expressway and is easily accessible via Katy Trail, which runs for 8.5 miles from downtown Tulsa to East 34th Street in Prattville. The new tenants will continue to allow trail-users to park at their facility, providing easy access to the Sand Springs Rotary Centennial Park where the town's namesake Sandy Springs are located.  

Stage Stores operates nearly 800 stores across 42  states under the names Bealls, Palais Royal, Peebles, Gordmans, and Goody's, including 148 with the name Stage. The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas, and is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. The company claims sales of $1.4 Billion in Fiscal Year 2016 and employs more than 14,000 employees.
