Welcome to the Greater Blytheville Area Chamber of Commerce

Welcome to Blytheville, Arkansas and the Greater Blytheville Area Chamber of Commerce. Often called the “gateway to the Arkansas Delta,” Blytheville combines the charms of small-town living with the accessibility of big city amenities, which are a mere hour away! 

The historic downtown area offers boutique shopping, along with clothing stores, books, shoes and great bargains.  All around town, you can enjoy superb accommodations at award-winning hotels.  Fine food is abundant, from our classic pork barbeque to ethnic delights and gourmet dining.

Steel-making and cotton-growing are two professions held in high esteem in this northeast corner of Arkansas. As the second leading steel producer in the nation, the area also is among leading agricultural producers for cotton and soy beans.

And the best thing: Everywhere you go, you can  expect a level of friendliness and warmth that only true Southern hospitality can offer.

Travel our site. We are here to help you find whatever you need and we would love to have you stop by for a visit!



 Summer winds down

   Visitors might not know it, but Delta residents are amazed that summer of 2014 has been--yes, we are going to say it--cool!  So far, temperatures have not made the 100 mark until recently, 95 was a rarity. Let's hope it does not catch up with us in September, as the football teams get into action and fall activities get underway in our community.
     This fall is an election year, with Blytheville going to the polls to elect three council members and a mayor. In Arkansas, we will get a new governor and a US Senate seat and congressional seat are up for grabs. The Chamber of Commerce will do its part to help people make wise voting choices, as on the local level, it will host Candidates' Forum (October 14) where candidates are invited to participate in a question/answer format program in their effort to win votes.  The Chamber will also host several "After Hours" opportunities featuring national candidates.  With the gubernatorial race in mind, Republican Asa Hutchinson spoke at the August Chamber Luncheon and Democrat Mike Ross will speak at the October luncheon.
     Other than politics, Blytheville keeps moving ahead--Note the new Tractor Supply scheduled to open its doors in a few months. Also coming to town is a new Dodge dealership and the popular Popeye's eating establishment.
     Fall festivities will include the annual Chili Cook-off in October--this year hosted by Main Street Blytheville, and many more events will start popping up as time goes by.
      It's all to say, whether visiting or living here, enjoy Blytheville!
