It won't be long now until Lawton's newest shopping center 'Scissor Tail Point' will be built and officially open!


If you've been on N.W. Cache Road lately, near 50th Street where the old movie theater used to be, you've probably seen all the construction going on. They're making good progress and before long we'll start seeing all the buildings going up. So what new companies are coming to town and opening up in Lawton, Fort Sill?

You've probably heard all the rumors that have been circulating over the past several months, it's felt like years, about a new shopping center that is being built on N.W. Cache Road. We've known for a while now that Mathis Brothers Furniture and the Mathis Sleep Center will be calling the 'Scissor Tail Point' center home.

It'll be a one-stop shop for all your home furnishing needs! The new shopping center will not only have Mathis Brothers Furniture and the Mathis Sleep Center but it will also have several other stores and maybe even some places to eat as well. Or at least I'm hoping so anyway. The shopping center is certainly big enough!


A while back the Lawton City Council approved a funding package to assist with the construction. Around $800,000 went towards the project to install all the new traffic lights on 50th and N.W. Cache along with road improvements and needed infrastructure like sewer, water, and electricity for the new shopping center.

It's an investment to gain additional economic opportunities with future tax revenues, not to mention all the new jobs the center will provide local and area residents. More places to shop and more jobs. It's a win, win!

With both Mathis Brother's Furniture and the Mathis Sleep Center confirmed a lot of people are wondering what else will open up at the new shopping center. There's a rumor going around town that Old Navy could be leaving the mall AKA Central Plaza and relocating to 'Scissor Tail Point.' We're also hearing that there are several other companies considering opening a location at the new shopping center.


Nothing has been confirmed yet, so keep in mind those are just rumors. Some say it's a done deal, others aren't so convinced. We'll keep you posted and as soon as we hear anything one way or another we'll be sure to pass it along...ASAP!
