Welcome to Chillicothe, Missouri

Signage for Sliced Bread Market is up at the former Piggly Wiggly building in South Town Shopping Center. W.H. Koch Co. is the parent company of Sliced Bread Market. Electric, refrigeration and plumbing are finishing up this week, and flooring installation will begin soon. After the flooring is laid, the shelves will be installed and stocked. Ironically, Thursday (July 7, 2016) marked the 88th anniversary of sliced bread. It was on July 7, 1928, that Chillicothe, MO, became the first place in the world to sell commercially-sliced bread to the buying public.
