Why is Guthrie a great community to be a part of?
Guthrie is a great community due to one factor: THE PEOPLE. The reception from the community has been amazing and we love the fact that the people of Guthrie are so willing to try new things.
Why is your company a part of the Chamber?
We chose to be a part of the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce to be informed of the local business environment. In addition, the Chamber is a great way to meet and learn about other Guthrie area businesses.
What is the last thing that made you smile?
A customer telling us that Guthrie needed a store like ours and that they are glad we are here in Guthrie.
"I joined the Chamber to help bridge the gap between the business community, the City of Guthrie, organizations, our schools and neighbors because we are all invested. When we work together with the help of the Chamber, we thrive as a community. "
Menecca Gibbs, Owner of Cleveland & Co. Mercantile

"The Guthrie Chamber of Commerce is a great partner in the community. As an active Church, it is important to us to be connected to businesses and other organizations that value relationship within the community. The Chamber goes above and beyond to make sure everyone stays connected with weekly events and fun activities. We love being a part of the Chamber!"

"The Guthrie News Leader regularly partners with the chamber as our goals are the same: connect businesses to the community. We not only enjoy attending the events the chamber presents, but also co-sponsoring events together. We’ve met new customers, contacts and lifelong friends through the chamber and we consider them part of our team."
