Emily Tuck walks through the backroom aisles at Carrol’s Shoe Corner in Elk City. She works here and at a record store next door in this city’s bustling downtown district of coffee shops, clothing boutiques and gift stores.
“Downtown kind of looked like a ghost downtown with the oil-field bust, and so just in the past few years it's really started thriving,” Tuck said.
Tuck likes working in Elk City. But there are a couple of things she would like to change. For instance, she would like more art in the downtown area.
