Service with an Oklahoma flair

MOORE — A unique pairing of indoor and outdoor items is available at a Moore establishment. Cheri Milburn and her daughter, Kristi Wilson, owners, have come up with a twist on a traditional theme by offering something for everyone at Jim’s Mower Service and General Store, 1550 S. Eastern.

At one end of the building, is the tried-and-true outdoor power equipment sales, service and parts shop and at the other is a wide variety of made-in-Oklahoma gifts, foods and confections. Customers can buy a Wright or Dickson zero-turn ratio mower at one end and do their gift shopping at the other.

“There has always been a general store as part of the mower shop,” Cheri Milburn said, explaining the inventory of gas cans, trash bags, rakes and shovels, but Milburn wanted to do more. So, about a year ago, she expanded into gift baskets featuring made-in-Oklahoma products.

Milburn and Wilson offer Bedre chocolates from Ada, Triple AAA root beer-an Oklahoma City product since the 1930s, Scott Farm soup mixes, old fashioned candies, meat rubs and rice mixes, Renos pickles, Eagle Rub seasonings and bar-be-que sauces from Edmond, Wild Horse Canyon Farms jellies and syrups from Luther, Ms. Netties herbs, spices and teas from Norman and Mema’s salsas and candies jalapeño peppers from Tulsa-just to name a fraction of the inventory.

Home decorating items such as cheese boards, olive oil bottles, recipe boxes, silicone baking molds and spatulas are available as are Beyond A Bag products.

Milburn has a variety of baskets in shapes including Oklahoma, cowboy boots and hats, hearts and houses-which are popular housewarming gifts. She will customize any basket or container with a patron’s choice of goodies and always has something made up for a quick gift idea.
