Congratulations, Grand Openings & Ribbon Cuttings for the Week of 6/11/18

Please support your fellow Chamber members by attending these upcoming ribbon cutting and grand opening events.

Upcoming Events:


JDog Junk Removal Low Country will celebrate its Savannah grand opening with a fundraiser at Service Brewing on June 12 to support the Nine Line Foundation, an organization dedicated to meeting the financial and specialized needs of severely injured soldiers and their families. The event is free to attend but donations to the Nine Line Foundation are encouraged.

JDog Junk Removal Lowcountry is an American-owned, veteran-operated junk removal franchise now serving the Savannah community. JDog Junk Removal’s mission is to empower veterans through entrepreneurship. The company hires veterans and military family members, and serves the Savannah community the same way it served our country–with respect, integrity, and trust. JDog Junk Removal recycles, reprocesses, and repurposes 80 percent of the items it collects, reducing the environmental impact of this “junk.”
