Keep it in the “O” Campaign encourages O'Fallon residents to shop locally.
O’Fallon city officials said they identified the decreasing sales tax revenue in the community and agreed to initiate change by launching the Keep it in the “O” campaign in late 2009, to encourage residents to dine and shop locally.

Fresh out of Northwest Missouri State with a degree in animal sciences, Erin Williams found herself stuck in a job she hated. She decided to seek new, temporary employment, something to merely provide a paycheck and tide her over while she sent out resumes. At the time, the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce (COC) was seeking an administrative assistant, so Williams, who had never even considered such a profession, applied and was hired. "I never even knew what chambers did [while in college]," she said, adding that she had always believed she would work in and retire from the agricultural field. "But [agriculture] just wasn't for me." This supposed short-term job would transform into a lifelong passion, as only one week after taking the …
