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!

It was a grand event! The Chamber Banquet brought out over 400 people to celebrate the best in business and best in volunteerism in the Blytheville community, and oh! What a night it was.

Award winners are to be congratulated:  Steve Southard goes in the books as the 2017 Lifetime Community Achievement Award recipient. A manager at Nucor-Yamato Steel, Steve is a most deserving winner who has an impact on every life he touches. Sandy "BeBe" Gillespie was named Citizen of the Year for his leadership in founding and managing Healing in the Hood, an organization that does the hard work of lifting underserved teens upward.  Large Business of the Year went to Dever Industrial Management Solutions, where Phil Dever works to serve the steel industrial complex. Small Business of the Year was awarded to Rose Pharmacy, founded by Blytheville native, John Rose--a hometown full-service pharmacy that has enjoyed a great first year in business.  The Pride in Property award went to Southern Bancorp for their major remodel of not one but all five area branches. Alicia Bell was awarded Educator of the Year for her superb work at Armorel Public Schools in the innovative E.A.S.T. program.  

The banquet also featured a shout-out to recently honored volunteers and the graduation of the Blytheville Leadership Institute class of 2017.  With the joyous theme of "Come One, Come All,"  the night bore a festive ambiance and sent over forty people home very happy, as winners in the famous Luxury Silent Auction and the Chamber Chance Auction. 

A great night for a great community!
