Henryetta could be getting a combination hardware and auto parts store.
Andrew Benson, owner of the Benson True Value/NAPA store in Okemah, met with Henryetta Economic Development Authority (HEDA) members Tuesday morning.
He said he was wanting to locate in the former Baker Electric building on Main Street.
Benson was asking about the possibility of some type of relief in sales tax money in order to locate.
He was old to put together a complete business plan and outline what his needs were then bring that back to HEDA.
Meeting on Tuesday due to the Monday holiday, HEDA members approved paying 418,863.70 for the water line replacement work on US 75 and Trudgeon. That work will remove an existing decades-old line and replace it with all new materials.
The city owned 35 acres of land just south of the Interstate 40 237 exit. Designed for retail development, part of that land had been leased to developers wanting to open a travel center and hotel. There has been no progress on either of those projects and board members are looking at avenues to advertise the location.
