We are excited for the opportunities a storefront will offer to connect our businesses and people within our business district to each other. The relocation of Chamber operations downtown places us closer to our partners in community enrichment and economic development. We are excited to be part of the revitalization efforts of downtown.”

We are ready to be front and center, as Statesboro-Bulloch’s most significant, organized business organization,” says Davis.
