The Dillard’s store in Muskogee — an anchor store for Arrowhead Mall since its opening — will close forever in May of 2019, according to notice received by the store’s employees this weekend.

The contract the store signed with the mall is up in May of 2019 and it will not renew, according to employees.

Sears, the other major anchor at the mall, closed a few years ago and will be replaced by the US Post Office soon. The mall’s third anchor, JC Penney, has announced no plans to leave the Muskogee location.

“The problem is low sales because Muskogee has significantly lower household income than the state average,” Cliff Casteel of OkieCountry Radio said on Sunday. “People can’t afford things here compared to other cities. Muskogee needs more good-paying jobs.”

Dillard’s has not responded to requests for comment.
