When you visit Alva, be sure to shop the charming boutique stores downtown and around town.
The patriarch of retail stores is Holder’s Drug. In business since 1952, you can find gifts from Mud Pie, Hallmark, Melissa & Doug toys, Christian books, and more. You can also get NWOSU, Alva Goldbug, and ranger jewelry as well as Oklahoma University (OU) and Oklahoma State University (OSU) gifts. (It’s not just shopping either. Grab a tasty bite at the old-fashioned lunch counter. Try the bacon sandwich and the famous Jack and Jill sundae — chocolate ice cream with marshmallow topping.)
