Our hometown of Bowling Green, Missouri, has been growing for the last few years! This growth has led to a boom of locally owned and operated places to eat, shop, and interact with the community! We have been in operation since 2004, meaning this is our 20th anniversary, so we have seen this community through two decades! So here are some of our favorite locally owned and operated businesses! 

  1. Bankhead’s Homemade Candies


Talk about the candy of your childhood! These candies are homemade, and let us just say, you can TASTE the difference. A staple of the community for many years, and an amazing town tradition to incorporate into your shopping trip! 


  1. Prairie’s Edge Garden Center and Nursery Stock


The best place for any plant needs! Cute decor, and fun seasonal activities! A beautiful place for the whole family to check out, especially if you consider yourselves a “green thumb” family! 


  1. Ann Layne Boutique 


A great local place to find the trendiest clothing! Clothes that are high quality, and meant to look great! The variety is amazing, you are sure to find something you love! 


  1. Spring Hollow Coffee


No shopping trip is complete without a great coffee! Iced or hot, Spring Hollow has the coffee for you, swing through the drive-thru and get the coffee fuel you need! 


  1. Woods Smoked Meats


Buy some of your favorite pre-packed smoked meats! Or if you are the hunting type, this is a great place to get your meat processed! Another long-time community staple! 


  1. Two Scoops Ice Cream 


Hand-scooped ice cream, do we need to say more? A delicious treat, your way! Did we mention they also do brick-oven pizzas? Yeah, this place is the perfect little treat!! 


  1. A Taste of Philly 


A nice dinner out after that day of shopping, A Taste of Philly is the place to be! Steak and Ale is their specialty, but they have so much more to offer! A great place to fill up and relax after a long day of shopping! 


  1. Howard’s Budget Furniture


We can’t say we saved the best for last because that would be extremely biased. But another must-see local business during any shopping trip is our furniture store! With rows and rows of recliner options, it is a sight to see! We have new mattresses, tables, living room furniture, and MORE for you! 


If you find yourself taking a day trip to good ole’ Bowling Green, find yourself in these local businesses, you sure won’t regret it!
