Pettis County proud of its 2010 record on retail growth

The economy may be slow in its improvement but area residents have something to cheer about — Pettis County is one of only 22 counties in Missouri that saw retail growth in 2010, the latest year available for data.

According to a report recently released by the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center, Pettis County had a retail trade pull factor of 1.13 (a score greater than 1 indicates a gain) which while on the low end compared to other improving counties, is still an impressive showing.
