We don’t know about you, but for the team at The Brace Place, this has been one of the strangest years of our lives. It’s also been one of the most difficult years for many local businesses dealing with the aftermath of closures and the ongoing challenges of social distancing. We went through hard times too, forced to shut the doors to our Tulsa and Claremore orthodontic practice for six weeks. We’re still so grateful to be open again and for your ongoing support.
When times are tough, it’s more important than ever to come together, support local businesses and do what we can to help our communities bounce back. With the holidays fast approaching, we want to take this opportunity to highlight some of our favorite stores in the neighborhood. Whether you’re comfortable heading out to stores in person or you’re sticking to online shopping this year, here are the best places to shop in Tulsa and Claremore this holiday season.
