MISSION AND HISTORY
Since the late 1940’s the Sugar House Chamber of Commerce has sought to amplify the voice of business owners. Now the Sugar House Business & Community Alliance, the organization enhances the economic and cultural vitality of our community by promoting our business community through a variety of means, such as advocacy, service to businesses and community, events, promotions, collaboration with other community organizations, and opportunities for business development.
The Sugar House Chamber of Commerce has been fostering community relationships for nearly 70 years. Whether it was known as the Merchants Association, the Chamber of Commerce, or by some other name, members of our business community have been gathering together to create a sense of place in Sugar House.
When Sugar House was the furniture row of Utah, many of the stores banded together to co-market and co-brand their sales. This practice remains today, with many of our local stores joining together for sales and events. We owe much of our history to a few local businesses in particular: Sterling Furniture and Smith Crown. The owners of these two stores have cared for our community and kept our traditions alive through their dedication and hard work for decades. Sugar House simply wouldn’t be Sugar House without them, and we – the Sugar House Chamber – are forever grateful.
