Coast Chamber Of Commerce Reopens

Like so many coast businesses, the Coast Chamber of Commerce took a serious blow from Katrina. But Tuesday the chamber reopened in a double wide trailer at the Intraplex in Gulfport.

The chamber's offices in Pass Christian, Long Beach, Gulfport, and Biloxi were washed away by Katrina. But thanks to some donations, they are up and running again and helping other South Mississippi businesses do the same.

"We've been very involved in the reemergence of coast businesses. We've had an outpouring of help, now it's up to us to help members of the Coast Chamber move forward," Duncan McKenzie said.

The new Coast Chamber offices are located right next door to the Harrison County Development Commission.
