Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

A grand opening, an expansion, an anniversary or a move to a new facility is made more special with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. If you're a home-based business, give us a call and we'll hold a special ceremony here at the chamber just for you!

Celebrate Local Ribbon-Cuttings

There are many benefits to having a ribbon-cutting ceremony for your business. Ribbon-cutting announcements are included in Monday’s Week Ahead email and photos are posted on the chamber’s Facebook page. The chamber's ambassadors attend ribbon-cutting ceremonies on behalf of the investors. Ribbon-cuttings are scheduled Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

There is no charge for the chamber ribbon-cutting, and your chamber is happy to help plan a ceremony for your business. It's a value-added benefit included in your membership dues.

An added bonus is an upgraded ribbon-cutting option for $99. The upgraded ceremony includes:

  • Stanchions to hold the ribbon
  • a press release sent to all local media (media coverage is subject to individual news outlets and cannot be guaranteed)
  • plaque commemorating the day
  • a livestream of the ribbon-cutting on Facebook
  • blog post after the ceremony on MyrtleBeachAreaChamber.com
  • mention in the weekly Grand Strander e-newsletter

Kickoff a grand opening of your business by contacting Shannon Furtick, business development services manager, at 843-916-7240 or Shannon.Furtick@VisitMyrtleBeach.com.
