“We view downtown as a community, and everyone doing business downtown as part of that community,” Berney said. “As downtown property owners, we can't all do all that the Devons can do, but this is a community service we, and others like us, can help provide.

DeLozier said the list of umbrella stand locations and sponsors is growing, and to keep up with the Pop-Ins expansion and other updates, people can visit or interact on Twitter at @popinsokc.

“We're proud to sponsor a program that encourages street life and makes working downtown even better.”
