Home goods and clothing store Cariloha coming to Utica Square

Bamboo home goods and apparel retailer Cariloha is coming to Utica Square, according to city of Tulsa building permits and the company's website.

Utica Square received a building permit last week for alternations to 1760 Utica Square, which is next to Stonehorse Market.

On the Cariloha website, the company lists the same Tulsa address and says it is coming soon.

"Since 2007, the brand has grown to become the only multi-store retailer in the world to provide an entire store experience that’s completely merchandised with products made from ecofriendly viscose from bamboo," the store's website says.


The website shows a wide array of products ranging from bedding to men's and women's clothing. Recent blogs on its website highlight new bamboo sheets and sock varieties. Cariloha fabrics are made from bamboo viscose, rayon from bamboo, polyester from bamboo or bamboo charcoal.

Founded in 2007, Cariloha is Utah-based and has more than 50 locations across the continental U.S., Hawaii, Mexico and throughout the Carribean. In the U.S., the chain has stores in large metro areas such as Washington, D.C., and wealthy tourist enclaves such as Bar Harbor, Maine, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The addition means another, unique to Oklahoma tenant for Tulsa's most prominent outdoor shopping center, which has been undergoing a transformation of sorts since late 2015.

But still no announcement on the former Miss Jackson’s or Petty’s spaces?

One has to wonder if something fell through for them to kick out long-term tenants and to demo the buildings only for it to sit vacant for as long as it has.

Yeah it's really strange, still hopeful the redevelopment of that part of Utica will be worth it.  It's literally a blank slate, they could do mixed-use, a small hotel with retail, condos, etc.

To be clear, they really only kicked out one long-term tenant.  (They owned Miss Jackson's, so Miss Jackson's was not really a tenant).  But your point is correct; something must have gone wrong or someone made a pretty significant miscalculation.  I can see closing Miss Jackson's, which was apparently a cash drain on the company; but presumably Petty's was paying rent, so kicking them out without a replacement in hand is a little hard to make sense of.

Probably got a new manager and he/she had to put their "stink" on it...change for change's sake.  Harvard School of Business MBA approach...

... I know 1 of the largest retailers there will be leaving in the next year as they want a much larger space and Utica can't accommodate them.

It's been well over a year since you told us this.  I haven't noticed any of the largest retailers leaving Utica Square since then.  Can you give us an update?

As big retail is slowly going away, should it be time for Utica to pivot?  We were at 5th night last night, and I kept thinking how nice it would be if that area was more park like.  Turn the Jackson/Petty spot into a small parking garage, and lay grass and put up some more trees in the area where 5th night is held.  People already expect to walk in Utica Square, so I don't think it would affect anyone other than Restoration, possibly.  Even then, Restoration is changing it's model to be more of a show room so you can get an idea and then order online.

I am so curious about the decisions made by Utica Square management regarding Miss Jackson's and Petty's and very surprised that almost 2 1/2 years after having apparently made the decision to close Miss Jackson's and kick out Petty's we still have an empty fenced-in site with no apparent plans to build anything.  What happened to the waiting list we've always been told exists for retailers who want to be in Utica Square?

Anyway, I just did a search on Utica Square's website, hoping to find some news about replacements. Here's what the search gave me (along with 6 other job openings at Miss Jackson's):

Utica Square needs a master plan for future development (if it doesn’t have one already).  More mixed-use, think condos or apartments above storefronts.  A few more restaurants.  Add more density and redevelop the “corners” at Utica and Yorktown, and the parking lots along 22nd Place.  And yes a larger park space in the middle would be great for events.

Big screw up happening in their management plan.  Post #304 above....

The plan didn't fail - "they didn't have a plan" is the fail !!
