TULSA, Okla. — The Greenwood Chamber of Commerce is speaking out amid a lawsuit from a business owner who says the chamber is wrongfully evicting her.
Greenwood Chamber President Freeman Culver says they extended “every olive branch” to Tori Tyson, the owner of Blow Out Hair Studio in the Greenwood District.
Culver says they gave Tyson 11 months to get in good standing with her rent. He says she didn’t have it done last month so they took her to court, giving her 10 days to pay.
Culver says she paid in 16 days, resulting in her eviction.
He says “Greenwood Center Ltd” is on the deed to her business which falls under the chamber’s for-profit umbrella.
