By WKTV News

HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Herkimer County Chamber of Commerce has a new place to call home.

On Thursday, the organization celebrated the grand opening of its new location on East German Street in Herkimer inside the HARC Business Park. The building was constructed more than 120 years ago and after an extensive renovation, the chamber is excited to operate from there. The chamber represents more than 500 local businesses, and it looks forward to adding new members.

"We preach to shop locally," said John Scarano, Executive Director of the Herkimer County Chamber of Commerce. "We shop within chamber members. There's great networking events as this is tonight - bring your business card, talk, drum up business for yourself, let people know who you are, use our chamber newsletter, use our website, use our visitor's guide. It's a great inexpensive way to get your name out there."

For the past 43 years, the chamber has operated out of it's hub in Mohawk.
