Capital City Gunsmiths' resident experts thoroughly inspect each part of a firearm––from fire-control systems to safeties and grips––for proper functionality. If they detect any broken parts or deficiencies, they will suggest the best course of improvements or repairs, many of which they can conduct themselves. In addition to fixing firearms, the team's services include in-depth cleanings, during which the entire gun is broken down so every part can be scrubbed, inspected, and oiled.

For more than 30 years, the owners of Jock's Nitch Locker Room have brought large sports-apparel stores to smaller communities throughout Kansas and Missouri. The racks and shelves of the Columbia location proudly display Mizzou gear that ranges from clothing to office decor and tailgating goods.

Originally bound to a small kiosk at a mall, My Smokeless has built its business one customer at a time. Today the company keeps its patrons happy with the latest in e-cigarette technology, eschewing the three-piece model sold by most vendors for a two-piece system. Boasting just a battery and a cartridge, the dual construction means there's fewer parts to lose or break, and smokers can easily adjust their draw strength with a simple twist. Available products at the shop include kits with multiple batteries and reliable chargers, a variety of cartridges in different flavors, and carrying cases that transport e-cigs in style. All products include a lifetime warranty.
After the local camera shop went out of business, customers contacted Ron Henges, the building's manager, about picking up their finished prints and repaired cameras. In the process of helping fill these last orders, customers recommended Ron open his own camera store to fill the need in the community. More than 30 years later, Creve Coeur Camera continues to serve and educate its customers through nine area locations, including a 12,000-square-foot flagship store. The shops supply and repair top-of-the-line cameras and photographic equipment and timely print services and teach how to craft charismatic images through a broad curriculum of classes.
