The City of Thornton is launching its own Chamber of Commerce, effective Feb.1.
The city had been part of the Metro North Chamber — a regional organization that serves 12 cities including Arvada, Westminster and Broomfield.
“This move makes solid business sense,” said Gregg Moss, Metro North president. “Our Chamber’s mission is to promote business across the region so we want to maximize the entrepreneurial potential of the entire area. Thornton did not have a community chamber; we saw the need and with the blessing of Thornton’s City Council, we’ve created this unique and important partnership.”
The Thornton Chamber will be an independent entity that operates as an arm of the Metro North Chamber. Thornton businesses who join the new Thornton Chamber will automatically have membership in the Metro North Chamber at no charge.
“It’s a win-win for Thornton and the Metro North Chamber,” Moss said. “The city can now fully harness its own business potential while enjoying all the benefits of the Metro North Chamber’s regional service and activities.”
Thornton has recently landed some big economic development and retail projects, including a 2.4 million-square-foot Amazon fulfillment center, which is under construction now, and a 330,000-square foot Simon Premium Outlets mall, which is also under construction.
