Ribbon Cuttings

The Amherst Chamber of Commerce provides assistance with the promotion and public relations for ribbon cutting ceremonies and grand openings.  The Chamber will also supply ceremonial scissors, ribbon, and provide the business owner with a proclamation certificate.

Ribbon Cuttings & Grand Openings are commemorations and businesses should showcase and present themselves to the community! It is an exciting time to acknowledge the hard work, time and resources invested  and is truly an opportunity to celebrate.

Enjoy the experience and make it a time to remember by inviting family, friends, customers, neighbors and vendors.
