As the Christmas season approaches, many fun activities are opening up around Oklahoma. 

Most holiday sales are after Christmas but BC Clark’s is right before! Many Oklahomans know the iconic BC Clark Jingle by heart and sing along to it every time they hear it.

“So, give the gift you know can’t fail, at BC Clark’s, anniversary sale!”
