Buy Missouri Week 2021 starts Saturday
October 7, 2021- Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe is pleased to announce the fourth annual Buy Missouri Week, October 9th through October 16th. As designated by the legislature, Buy Missouri Week encourages Missourians to purchase Missouri-made products in support of those who create, grow, manufacture, distribute, promote, and sell goods made in Missouri.
“As I travel throughout the state, I am always amazed at the ingenuity, initiative and creativity
of Missourians,” said Kehoe. “Buy Missouri Week promotes terrific products manufactured right
here in Missouri. The week also reminds Missourians that when we buy Missouri-made
products, we support our friends, family and neighbors who work at, and own, these
Governor Mike Parson pioneered the Buy Missouri initiative as Lieutenant Governor. While in
the Senate, Kehoe sponsored Senate Bill 891 establishing Buy Missouri Week. It received
overwhelming bi-partisan support in both legislative chambers and was signed into law.
"Associated Industries of Missouri is proud to have been one of the initial supporters of the Buy Missouri program and we applaud Lt. Gov. Kehoe's continued commitment to supporting Missouri manufacturers, farmers, and others that create things here in our great state," said Ray McCarty, president and CEO of Associated Industries of Missouri. "This program helps consumers easily identify products made by Missouri workers and we are proud of its continued success."
“An exciting addition to the program this year has been the Buy Missouri Retail Partnership,
whereby retail locations around the state can apply to become a partner and be featured on the
buymissouri.net website. Missourians can then browse these retail locations to find where they
can purchase Missouri-made products. It has been a great year for the program, and we are
well on our way to reaching 500 members by the end of 2021,” Kehoe concluded.
