Rutland Chamber and dignitaries cut the ribbon on $16 milion airport expansion project and runway safety enhancements at Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport on November 10, 2015.

Nothing says "Small Business is Booming" in Rutland VT more than the increasing number of ribbon cuttings that have been occurring lately. Within the next week,  the Rutland Chamber will be on hand at three more, new small businesses right here in the heart of Rutland.  Add these to the ribbon cuttings last week at the Rutland/Southern Vermont Regional Airport's $16 million dollar expansion and the opening of LaFlamme's Furniture Mall in the Diamond Run Mall and it all indicates the strength of our local economy. Congratulations to all our entrepreneurs who have the guts and the work ethic required to be a successful small business. Vermont has never had a shortage of smart entrepreneurs, so you're in good company! Here is a list of some of the upcoming unveilings!
