TAHLEQUAH — During the past couple of months, a number of new businesses have opened in Tahlequah.

Among the newly established ventures are the Hu-Lu Hookah Lounge, Legacy Barn Co., Time and Again Bookstore, Tree Tacklers, Enchanted Spa & Nails, Neufloria, Suburban Super Supply, and Cox Storage Co.

“Tahlequah continues to grow, and to be a great place to do business,” said David Moore, executive director of the Tahlequah Area Chamber of Commerce. “We are encouraged by all the new businesses that have opened, and look forward to many others.”

Time and Again Bookstore deals primarily with used books, though some new books are on the shelves.

“We are the only secular bookstore in town,” said Erynn Crittenden, executive manager. “The others are Christian bookstores, though we certainly have a selection of Christian titles available.”

Those who sign up to receive the store’s newsletter are entered in a drawing for a $20 gift card.

“We have been open about six weeks,” Crittenden said. “Right now, our budget doesn’t allow us to do any buybacks. If anyone wishes to donate some gently used books they don’t read anymore, we will welcome them.”

Time and Again Bookstore, 202 S. Muskogee Ave., is open 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Saturdays.

Jake Drueppel is owner of Tree Tacklers, which handles all aspects of tree work.

“We do removal and trimming,” Drueppel said. “We are fully insured, so we can remove dangerous trees. I have a 65-foot bucket truck and all other equipment necessary to get the job done. We can also haul the trees away if needed, though many like to keep them for firewood.”

Neufloria is a floral shop owned and operated by Aaron LeMaster.

“I opened this business because I really like delivering flowers to people,” LeMaster said. “It puts them in a good mood. We do arrangements and delivery and everything that goes out is top-notch and has my approval. We can do traditional or modern arrangements. We also carry a lot of exotic, hard-to-find plants and we are getting new inventory every week.”

Neufloria is on 306 N. Muskogee Ave.

Legacy Barn Co., owned by Shawna Spencer, specializes in post-frame construction of barns, garages, workshops and storage buildings. For information about Legacy Barn Company call 1 (855) 900-2276, or visit www.legacybarnco.com.

Rex Cox is the owner of Cox Storage Co. at 1606 S. Muskogee Ave. The facility offers outdoor, RV and climate controlled self-storage. More information is available at coxstorage.com, or see the ad that runs regularly in the Daily Press.

Enchanted Spa & Nails is at 225 N. Muskogee Ave. The Hu-Lu Hookah Lounge is in the North End Entertainment District at 111 Spring St.

Suburban Super Supply markets janitorial, office and party supplies. It is at 2027 Mahaney Ave.
