Time to celebrate

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 ceremony will include stanchions, a press release to all local media, plaque commemorating the day, bows, a guaranteed picture in the Grand Strander, and we’ll stream the ribbon-cutting live on Facebook.

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

To maximize this unique opportunity to spread the word about your business and get locals in, here are some tips and tricks.
