The Chamber Welcomes New Businesses to Cape Ann.
Read the post featured on Good Morning Gloucester here .

Over the past several weeks the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce has welcomed many new businesses to the Cape Ann business community. CVS Pharmacy’s new location at Gloucester Crossing,  Cleod Glassworks  and  Sea & Cellar in Rockport,  Shackteau Interiors  in Magnolia, and just last week we welcomed  Happy Valley  to Blackburn Center with a ribbon cutting at their grand opening. With more businesses opening on Cape Ann in the coming weeks, we could not be prouder of the perseverance our community has shown. We look forward to working together as a community and ensure that Cape Ann and our broader North Shore neighbors rebuild and emerge even stronger.
