That’s where Uptown Grocery Co. has sprouted on the prairie, bringing shoppers in this upscale Oklahoma City suburb high quality gourmet prepared foods, top-notch produce, prime aged beef, dock-fresh seafood, made-from-scratch bakery, floral, organic and conventional groceries, along with the latest in dietary supplements, all housed in a literally “industrial chic” environment where everything – including the temperature – is geared to shopper comfort.
