LAWTON IS A MAJOR RETAIL HUB IN SOUTHWEST OKLAHOMA
Lawton has a captive retail base stretching out roughly 50 miles and touching seven counties in southwestern Oklahoma. Lawton is the largest retail hub between Oklahoma City and Dallas.
As the major retail hub in southwest Oklahoma, Lawton maintains a wide spectrum of retailers from the nationally know big box stores to the home grown specialty stores.
One of the primary shopping attractions is the Central Mall, anchored by Dillards, JC Penney and Sears with 70 other shops and a 12-screen theater showplex. Central Mall is the No. 1 visitor destination in southwestern Oklahoma with shoppers from around the country and world.
Central Mall is 100 percent occupied and has many of the big name retailers that most shoppers are looking for. The mall was built in 1979 but the interior was entirely renovated in 2002 and locals have great pride in the pleasant shopping environment they find.
With Oklahoma City being an hour drive away, it's a great alternative for that occasional shopping adventure.
