Jimmy Payne's Coast to Coast Home & Auto
Family owned and operated, since 1957. Jimmy and Robert Payne started the company as an Economy Auto franchise store in 1957. At that time, to get a building downtown, they had to purchase the inventory of the previous business. They had to come up with $3000 to purchase that inventory; which they turned around and sold to another individual for $500. From those humble beginnings, they later moved to a larger building in town and gradually expanded over the years, acquiring the neighboring buildings.
In 1966, the Economy Auto company was bought out by the Oklahoma Tire and Supply Company (better known as OTASCO) and the Payne's changed the name of their store to OTASCO. In the late 90's Otasco's wholesale division was purchased by the Coast to Coast Hardware Company. That is when we changed our name to Coast to Coast Home & Auto. The Coast to Coast Hardware Company went through several mergers and aquisistions which finally resulted in that company merging with True Value Hardware - which remains today.
