Title & responsibilities: Amy Brown, Sec/Treasurer of Harry Thompson Inc. DBA Sooner Home Furnishings. "My main responsibility is electronics and accounting. But as with all small businesses I do a little bit of everything."
Aspect(s) of the Chamber that are most important to you: "Anything pertaining to retail business and downtown."
Last place you went for the first time: "It was not my first time to visit Disney World in Florida, but in 2022 I got to take my granddaughters to Disney World for their first time. It was my first time as a grandmother and still my most favorite place to go."
Favorite movie: "I can’t say that I have a favorite movie. There are so many. But I can say most any Disney movie is a favorite."
A collection you own: "I have a very large collection of scrapbook supplies! I LOVE pictures!"
Personality trait that adds the most value to your work: "I would say that I am honest and trustworthy. I hope others would think that also. I am also creative or I enjoy being creative."
Proudest accomplishment: "My kids. As far as business goes, I have achieved awards with RadioShack through the years, but in the larger scheme they aren’t what truly matters."
If you could go back in time, when, where and why would you go: "I don’t know that I would want to go back in time. Maybe a few years ago when retail business was different, but even then I still don’t think I want to go back in time. I really enjoy now, but enjoy looking at pictures from the past."
Your personal hero: "As a young person my hero was Nadia, I loved gymnastics. As an adult I would say my parents were my role models. I guess that would be considered a hero. They taught me a lot in business and family."
If I could invite 3 people to a dinner party... "It would definitely be…. I know this should be some deep thought provoking question, but my honest answer would be my dad, Harry Thompson, my mom, Ardith Thompson and my grandma Myrtle Jacobson."
