The Chamber of Commerce wants to help you celebrate!

Ribbon cuttings are a complimentary service offered to Chamber members.  Whether you’re a new Chamber member, opening or moving to a new location, or celebrating a business milestone ... a ribbon cutting is a perfect way to promote your business!

Here’s How It Works:

  • A date & time are chosen that will work best for both your business and the Chamber.  Day and times that work best to ensure a well attended ribbon cutting are: Monday – Friday from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM.
  • Prior to your ribbon cutting, the Chamber will invite members of their Meet & Greet Committee to come and celebrate with your business.
  • At the scheduled date & time, members of the Meet & Greet Committee and a Chamber representative will arrive at your business for the ribbon cutting and photo.
  • After your ribbon cutting, a Chamber representative will send your photo and press release to local media.


The Chamber provides everything needed to hold your ribbon cutting: ribbon, scissors, and photographer.  The business is responsible for sending the Chamber a 100-200 word press release to be included with the photo to the Chamber. Ribbon cutting photos are sent to the Morning Star Business Review, Coast Press, and Cape Gazette (Publications hold the right to include the press and photo at their discretion).  Your ribbon cutting photo will also appear on our website, Facebook page and in the Chamber’s monthly FocusOn newsletter.
