Supporting local businesses and fostering economic development are priorities for the Brunswick Area Chamber of Commerce. We are pleased to introduce Brunswick Bucks to encourage residents to spend their money locally to strengthen the local economy. Supporting local businesses adds to the tax base helping our school, streets, city services, ambulance, etc.
Can Brunswick Bucks have an impact? Area communities with similar programs have enjoyed tremendous success. The seven communities we spoke with confirmed that their programs made “significant impacts” in their local economies and were very well received. It is a “Win! Win!” situation for all: consumer, businesses, and area residents. Each of us can make a difference.
Participating “Brunswick Bucks” Businesses: AgriServices of Brunswick, Allen’s Dime Store, Ashlyn House B&B, Bowyer’s Florist, Brunswick Auto Parts, Brunswick Distributing, The Brunswicker Newspaper, Buds & Blossoms, Creative Memories, Finishing Touch, Gordon Building Center, Gourmet Cheesecakes by Kaitlynn, Harmon’s Service, Leanna’s, Plantation Antiques & Interiors, Prenger Foods, Sam Johnson’s Furniture & Appliance, Sew Sweet Quilt Shop, Sherry’s Home Cookin’, Sycamore Valley Farm B&B, and The Railyard Steakhouse.

The sidewalks are finished and they look fantastic! The beautiful street lights and banners welcoming all to our charming community really set off the downtown area. “Revitalization fever” appears to be contagious. Each day I can’t wait to get to town and see what business owner has caught the “fever” and their business is getting a “new look.” Thanks to all who continue to invest in the Brunswick area with their time, talents, resources, and finances to breath new life into the downtown area. Your efforts are greatly appreciate!
“Ernest Perry, freight development administrator at the Missouri Department of Transportation, leads an effort to study ways to increase freight travel along the Missouri, create jobs and promote an environmentally friendlier way to transport goods,” begins the article in the May 2010 issue of Today’s Farmer.
The article goes on to say, “Private companies like AGRIServices of Brunswick, LLC, continue to move grain along the Missouri River, but on a more limited basis than in the past. ‘We located along the Missouri so we could use barges to move grain out and fertilizer into this community,’ said Bill Jackson, manager of this operation that operates in the central part of the state.”
Because this issue has a direct economic impact to our region, we hope you will read the complete article.
The article begins, “The sweet smell of hay, the steady drone of tractors, the taste of oven-fresh bread slathered with sweet butter, and the vastness of the sky on star-studded nights. Ah, the country. In an age of Blackberrys and iPhones, many Americans yearn to escape from 24/7 connectedness and frenzied multitasking to return to the simple charms of country living.” Owners Matt & Tina Reichert are frequently reminded by their guests just how very special these simple pleasures are. Tina goes on to say, “It is quite an honor to be featured in Missouri Life. What is much more satisfying is the exposure this will give to Brunswick. We love where we live and thoroughly enjoy the privilege of sharing our home, farm, and community with others. We hope this article will bring many visitors to our area.” Click here to read a PDF version of the article.
