Atwoods Ranch and Home was founded in Enid, Oklahoma, by Wilbur and Fern Atwood in the early part of 1960. The couple wanted to provide rural customers with quality tools and items for both the farm and home.
Today, Atwoods Ranch and Home have 58 locations in 5 states, including Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas and Kansas. The company remains family owned and operated. In addition to the 58 locations, the company operates three large warehouse distribution centers, two in Enid, Oklahoma, and the other in Tyler, Texas. One distribution center in Enid is a former Walmart location. While the company has considered moving into one larger warehouse, at the moment, plans are to remain in Enid.
The company is known for maintaining a local, low-key, down home type atmosphere, including free popcorn, despite expansion plans.
