In December 1968, IBT opened its fifth branch location in Joplin, Missouri, located at 313 East Seventh Street.
During the 40 years that IBT Joplin has been serving customers in southwest Missouri, the branch has been relocated twice. First in 1977 to 1202 South Schifferdecker Avenue and again sixteen years later, in 1993, to its present location at 2701 West Thirteenth Street.
To celebrate its fortieth anniversary, IBT will hold a Customer Appreciation Day on Wednesday, April 23, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The event will feature a trade show with IBT’s leading vendors showcasing their latest products and technologies and includes a tasty lunch buffet.
The customer appreciation event will be held at theÂ Butcher’s Block Banquet Center, 499 West Fountain Road in Joplin.
