Easygates, a chain owned by Wichita entrepreneur Bud Gates, opened an Easyhome store in Tulsa on Saturday.
This was the first Easyhome store in Oklahoma, but the company plans to eventually open several more in the state, Gates said.
The stores sell, lease or lease-to-own home furnishings, electronics and appliances. The Tulsa location is the 11th Easygates franchise store in the U.S.
Easygates, which Gates established in 2007, has the exclusive rights to franchise or operate Easyhome stores in the 36 states in the United States not bordering Canada.
