Lt. Gov Mike Parson, AIM and others launch “Buy Missouri” program
Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Parson spoke at the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday morning to launch a new statewide initiative called Buy Missouri.
The announcement was Parson’s first stop on a two-day tour of promoting the Buy Mo advertising campaign in 10 Missouri cities.
“The whole idea of ‘Buy Missouri’ is to promote Missouri products that are made by Missourians,” Parson said. “You go to the grocery store every day, and we all buy breakfast cereal, barbecue sauce, hand cleaner, gloves and pet food. All of that is made in Missouri. We want you to realize what those Missouri products are and hopefully, you’ll take a good look at them before you look at another brand.”
“Buy Missouri is something we can do to help ourselves,” McCarty said. “It helps our neighbors, the people you go to church with, the people your kids go to school with. These are our friends. This is us. This is Missouri.”
The tour included these locations:
St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce, St. Joseph
Roasterie Coffee, Kansas City
Gilster-Mary Lee, Joplin
Grove Salsa (event held at Harter House), Springfield
Woods Supermarket, Bolivar
Cape Girardeau Area Chamber of Commerce, Cape Girardeau
Fitz’s Root Beer, University City
Hendrickson’s Salad Dressing, St. Charles
