About Us

Founded in 1925 by Lee Ratcliffe, Ratcliffe’s Textbooks has grown from a single bookshelf in a small Weatherford sandwich shop to five Oklahoma area bookstores run by three Ratcliffe brothers: Randy, James and Rich.

We currently serve students at the University of Oklahoma, Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Rose State College, the University of Central Oklahoma, Oklahoma City University, and Oklahoma City Community College. While we have grown, Ratcliffe’s remains dedicated to providing you, the student, with the textbooks and other course materials necessary for success in your college career. Ratcliffe’s looks forward to serving Oklahoma students for years to come.
