In November, Reba announced that she was opening her own entertainment center in downtown Atoka.

“She’s very practical, so it makes a big difference and the city of Atoka is amazing, not just the city as a whole, like the city council and the people who work in the city, but the community as a whole. I mean, they just got us so supportive and were so excited about it all, we couldn’t ask for better partners,” Smith said.

News 12 spoke to local business owners and residents of Atoka about what they think of Reba’s Place.

“It should be great, it’s going to be great, it’s going to change the whole face of this downtown, I’ve been here 27 years and I’ve seen things come and things go, but it will have a lasting impact on this community. there is no doubt about that, Jewelry Sarilea Said owner Sarilea Combs.

“We’re very rural, we’re very Southeast Oklahoma, you know, Reba T-shirts on them, stuff like that, so it’s going to be really casual, a lot of fun, you’ll probably see a lot of denim because it’s there’s a sort of ranch-rodeo feel throughout the restaurant, but I don’t think we’ll have red wigs,” Smith said.
