Employees of Metro Appliances & More Oklahoma City store also live in the Moore area.

Metro Appliances & More is no stranger to being a drop off center after a natural disaster. Jon Anderson, Wichita store manager, was actually the store manager in Joplin, Missouri when the tornado touched down two years ago today. “The response from people across the country was astounding when Joplin was hit,” said Anderson. “Our store in Joplin became the only perishable food bank in the city, and we literally had trucks showing up from across the nation to donate food to help the people in our city.”
Metro Appliances & More has 10 locations across the Oklahoma, Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas. In addition to the tornado warnings for the Oklahoma City and Edmond stores yesterday, tornado warnings were also issued in areas affecting our stores in Springdale, Arkansas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Jonesboro, Arkansas.
