Get The Best Deals When You Shop In Missouri

Missouri is the namesake of the longest river in the U.S., the birthplace of nationally renowned Kansas City-style barbeque, and home to the world’s tallest arch. The Show-Me State offers shopping experiences worthy of any world-class city offering a wealth of great deals, dining, and entertainment.

Shop to your heart’s content in the district of Kansas City, stretching 15 blocks. This top shopping and dining destination is also a hub for art, entertainment, history, and cultural events. Country Club Plaza boasts over 150 mid-range and luxury shops and many high-end eateries.

You may forget that you’re in the Midwest when strolling the Plaza and taking in its architecture and design, which are heavily influenced by classic Western European style. Soak up the views of a half-scale replica of Spain’s famous Giralda Tower and fill your Instagram feed with shots of intricate fountains and breathtaking sculptures that look straight out of an art museum.
