Ron's Hamburgers
Skiatook, OK
The Ron's Hamburgers sign was originally built in 1954 for Claud's Hamburgers in Tulsa. It was repainted for Jerry's Hamburgers and later for Red's Hamburgers. Red's moved to Skiatook and brought this sign. The sign was then later repainted for Ron's. Ron's Hamburgers was a Tulsa-based chain, established in 1975. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.

The United Supermarket chain was established in Sayre, OK in 1916. There are now about 50 locations in Oklahoma and Texas. These locations' signs appear to be from the 1950s and obviously had neon originally. I don't know of any that still have neon tubing. The Enid store and sign are gone now.
