Sock company marks 60th year
McCubbin Hosiery is celebrating 60 years in business. The Oklahoma City-based legwear company was founded in 1952. Brothers Mark and David McCubbin, the grandsons of founder Chester McCubbin, have led the company since 1982. McCubbin holds licenses for private brands including Stride Rite, Keds, Robeez and Absorba. The company also develops private label products for retailers including Nordstrom, Dillard's, Kohl's, Payless Shoesource and Walmart. In honor of its 60th anniversary, the company donated 60,000 pairs of socks and tights to charity.
Four couples win wedding rings
Four newlywed couples won free engagements rings through the “Pray for Rain” program at BC Clark Jewelers. Kelly Chambers and Michele Lindley are one of the lucky couples; the others declined to release their names. Oklahoma City received more than an inch of rain Saturday and the four couples married that day who purchased rings from BC Clark will be reimbursed for the cost of their engagement rights, up to $5,000.
