Your Business is Our business
The Greater Sitka Chamber of Commerce links businesses with other leading Sitka area business members, officers, leaders and managers, and elected officials to enhance economic growth and development. Through involvement in and attendance at chamber events, local business leaders are better connected with other business professionals outside of their regular schedule.
The Greater Sitka Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of business and community leaders who promote, support, and facilitate commerce and economic growth in the community.

Small Business SaturdayWe are proud to say that the City & Borough of Sitka has proclaimed November 30, 2013 as Small Business Saturday, urging residents to support our small businesses and merchants.
Shopping locally is incredibly important to our economy. The money that we spend in Sitka, stays in Sitka and strengthens the economic base of our community that we all love so much. By supporting our local businesses, we are helping to keep Sitkans employed while creating a tax revenue that allows us to continue to enjoy all of the great services that our city provides. And, by shopping locally, we are working together to reduce the carbon footprint caused by shopping online. Our local businesses help to keep Sitka the unique and vibrant community that we all love and give so much in so many ways! Please show your support by shopping locally, not just on Small Business Saturday, but all year round.
