• Chamber Members On the Move and In the News!

    It is so exciting to see businesses grow and move to locations to better themselves for whatever reason. 
     Need more space?  Better foot traffic?  Whatever the reason we want to shout it from our roof tops that our members have moved or made the news!  

    We've had so many of our members re-locate and wanted to start this new way to let everyone know. 
    We are also very glad to have great sponsors to many of our programs and events and this is no different.   

    Chamber Members On the Move and In the News is sponsored in part by The Realty Team in Watertown.

    Sunshine & Co.
    Sunshine & Co is our very first business to re-locate since we started this series.  In November 2017 the Watertown Area Chamber of Commerce held a Ribbon Cutting as part of the Grand Opening for Sunshine & Co. on 1st Ave South ac
    ross from the Codington County Court House. Sabrina has a great business model and the location was great to start her new business.  She realized the business was good and thought maybe 1st Ave South didn't have the foot traffic she needed.   In April of 2019 Sabrina relocated to a new store front on Kemp Ave with the assistance of the Watertown Development Company once she was alerted to the programs they offered by Jen Pendley, Director of Membership Services.
