Buy Missouri Week

The first ever Buy Missouri Week is getting ready to start.

Lt. Governor Mike Kehoe will be traveling across the state to promote products made in Missouri.

Governor Mike Parson handed down the initiative earlier this year, to improve the state’s economy by asking consumers to shop local.

There are currently 150 companies listed on a directory on, during the tour Kehoe is looking to expand the list.

Kehoe will be stopping on the tour in Jefferson City starting on Monday at Delong Steel.
