Citizens of Lawton, Oklahoma, have all been trying to guess what will be going in the old Bed, Bath and Beyond location on 2nd Street. It now looks like the store will be divided into two stores: 5 Below and pOpshelf.

Second 5 Below is coming to Lawton.

After several stores closed in the strip mall by Target on the west side of Lawton, it was a while before new stores went in the empty spaces. One of the first to move in was 5 Below. Now central and the east side of Lawton will get their own 5 Below on 2nd Street. It's just one of the stores that's going in the old Bed, Bath and Beyond location.

Citizens are curious about what pOpshelf is.

When the purple awning went up over the storefront, Lawton citizens were stuck as to what the second store in the old Bed, Bath and Beyond location would be. Recently, signage started going up denoting a pOpshelf would be going in the spot. But what is pOpshelf?

According to the pOpshelf official website, the store is "a stress-free shopping destination." It states that the store believes in "bringing enjoyment back to shopping by making it easy to get things you need and fun to find things you want." The store will carry various categories of items, including home, kitchen, party supplies, arts and crafts, beauty and body, health and wellness, toys, household, office and school supplies, electronics, market, pet, apparel and accessories, lawn and garden, and holidays.

Based on the pOpshelf official Facebook, the store is ran by the Dollar General Corporation. The pOpshelf location in Lawton will be the sixth store in Oklahoma. Other locations include Broken Arrow, Choctaw, Moore, Oklahoma City and Tulsa.

pOpshelf opened in Lawton over the weekend.

Lawtonians can now check out pOpshelf for themselves! The Lawton location opened over the weekend. According to the pOpshelf website, the store is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday-Saturday.

While most famously had issues before the pandemic, the country is back on the build and more than a few beloved brands are looking to expand in states where they've either failed in the past or haven't been yet.
