OkieSpice & Trade Co. held a grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting Wednesday afternoon with much fanfare from local business owners and city officials.
Representatives from the City of Sand Springs, Tulsa County, Sand Springs Community Services, Sand Springs Home, and Sand Springs Chamber of Commerce all came out for the ceremony to wish owners Kim and Steve Zieg good fortune in their new venture.
Located at 501 West 2nd Street in the former Roary D's Hair Emporium, the new store specializes in spices, seasonings, salsas, and other cooking and novelty items. The products are about 75% made-in-Oklahoma according to Kim. There are smoked cheeses, bottled sodas, summer sausages, candy, decor, and more.
The Ziegs hope to be a valuable addition to Sand Springs and to draw visitors to their hometown. In addition to renovating a long-vacant building and giving it a fresh curb appeal, they have also commissioned a mural on the side of their building and are members of the Chamber of Commerce.
The store is open from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. They are closed Sunday and Monday. You can reach OkieSpice at 918.514.0045
