Open Mon-Sat 10am to 5pm
Owned by Graham & Rosemary Smith, Things U.K Ltd stocks an excellent selection of British foods, china, gifts, and videos. From teapots to toffee crisp they have it!

Christmas selections are always well done with plenty of Christmas puddings, Christmas cake, crackers and selection boxes. They can also order in specific items for you by request and shipments from the UK are frequent.

Petty's Fine Foods
1964 Utica Sq
Tulsa, OK 74114
(918) 747-8616
Petty's sell import foods from many countries and have a decent selection of English and Irish cheeses. Cheddar, Red Leicester, Stilton, etc.

Target
Nationwide
USA
Target stock Weetabix. Oh yes, the original healthy British breakfast cereal. This side of the pond it's made in Canada so doesn't suffer the killer shipping premium most stuff imported from the UK does. They also stock a reasonable microwave curry.

Albertsons (now Food Pyramid in OK)
Nationwide
USA
Just recently the Albertsons supermarket chain added a UK foods section. This is the first time I've seen a major retailer sell anything more than Marmite, and it's quite a nice selection too.

Of the items I remember there were PG Tips and TyPhoo teabags, various Robinsons dilutable drinks (orange, barley lemon, etc), lots from McVities including Ginger Nut biscuits, porridge oats, jams, jars of Tikka Masala sauce, Colemans packet mixes e.g. Shepherds Pie mix, and lots more. Definitely worth a look as they have stores across the US.

Since our local Albertsons was bought by Food Pyramid, I've noticed that they now stock Colemans Mustard and Cadbury Fingers (made in Birmingham, not Hersheyfied!).

The Market
(defunct)
Kingspoint Village
61st and Yale
Tulsa, OK
The Market is an upscale supermarket and while not specifically British, it has a small selection of British foods on offer, including import cheeses, Weetabix, various jams and marmalades, chocolates, HP sauce, and more. You'll no doubt be tempted by the wealth of other things though as it's really very nice in there and they have free WiFi Internet access. Update - unfortunately the Tulsa store has closed but as far as I am aware the ones operating in other states are still alive and well.
