This fall, Downtown Kirkwood is enjoying cooler weather, turning
leaves and a bumper crop of new and expanding businesses in the
Special Business District. Since July, several businesses have
opened or expanded their operations in Downtown Kirkwood.
One of the most notable and ambitious expansions is McArthur's
Bakery & Cafe. The bakery moved its retail operation from 113
N. Kirkwood Road to 210 N. Kirkwood Road. The new location includes
new menu offerings, a party cake department and a beautiful room
for brides-to-be to select their wedding cake design and flavors.
McArthur's Bakery is now open in their new location.
On September 11th, The Mizzou Store opened at 200 S. Kirkwood
Road. The store features clothing and gift items. A grand
opening pep rally is being planned for October 24, 2015. "The
University of Missouri is proud to open The Mizzou Store in the
Kirkwood community. Mizzou alumni and fans are
passionate about the university and we are excited to give them a
new opportunity to shop for unique and authentic Mizzou gear," said
Michelle Mazza Froese, Ph.D., Assistant Director, Strategic
Communications for Student & Auxiliary Services of the Division
of Student Affairs at the University of Missouri.

Direct, 101 N. Kirkwood Road, opened in July; I.am Life Products,
