Outwest in Downtown Claremore Offers Décor for the Outdoor Enthusiast

outwest

Jenny Meeks is an old-fashioned kind of lady. Quiet but forever with a smile on her face, Jenny greets customers every day at her store, Outwest Home Décor, 418 W. Will Rogers Blvd.

Prior to Outwest, she worked at Hallmark for more than two decades, but as soon as computers were introduced to the store, Jenny wanted out.

Despite technology at its most prevalent, Jenny does all her inventory and business management with a traditional paper and pencil, she said.

“I was familiar with what the customer wanted,” Jenny explained about branching out on her own. “They wanted larger statues and items that don’t fit on a counter. I saw a need for it and thought, ‘I can do that.’”

“We have décor for hunting, fishing, camping, lodges, really anything outdoors.”

Jenny epitomizes a strong work ethic. In the winter, you can find Jenny scraping ice and snow off the sidewalks all up and down the 400 block of Will Rogers. She runs her store without help seven days a week and has been doing so since she opened more than 11 years ago.

“It’s hard work, but it’s fun,” she said. “I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have something to do.”
