A ribbon cutting is the ceremonial opening of a brand-new or newly-renovated/relocated business. It can inaugurate a business’s first day of business, or it can take place weeks or months after the business’s soft opening. It can also celebrate an anniversary of the business years after operations have begun. Because the ribbon cutting marks a very significant moment in the business’s history, this is also a great photo opportunity. In addition, you may take this opportunity to publicly thank your financial backers, employees, friends, and family and/or business partners. All of the services described below are free of charge for members of the Williamsport/Lycoming Chamber of Commerce.

  • We provide the creation of an advertising flyer sent via email to our Chamber Board of Directors, our Chamber Membership Committee members, local officials and media outlets.

  • We provide the ribbon, bow and our extra-large scissors for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
  • We arrive at your location early to assist you in conducting your Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
