Wade M Rivest, Owner, JDog Westfield
"JDog Junk Removal & Hauling has been a member of the Westfield Chamber of Commerce for almost 2 years now, and the impact has been irreplaceable. Being a Chamber member provides vital contacts to other businesses, city officials, and the local community. JDog can proudly say that we will continue to support our local Chamber, as they have supported us from day 1. Since I walked into the office back in 2017, the entire staff has made me feel like a priority, and more importantly, a family member. Thank you all, and we look forward to the future!"
Chris Bone, PE, Tighe & Bond
“Westfield Chamber of Commerce is an important resource for local businesses to connect to our community. Businesses showcase their strengths through a membership, enabling the public to discover and enlist a businesses’ services or even connect on a personal level through a Chamber-sponsored community event. Tighe & Bond is proud of our relationship with the Westfield Chamber of Commerce, and the many ways it helps connect us to the local community.”
Ronald Bryant, President, Baystate Noble Hospital
"Baystate Noble Hospital is a proud member of Baystate Health and has been a member of the Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce for many years. Throughout those years Baystate Noble has undergone significant changes and enhancements and the Chamber has been by our side throughout all those developments. The many different events throughout the year allow for great networking opportunities with other businesses, occasions to meet new business associates, exchange ideas, and reinforce existing relationships. The Chamber staff, led by Kate Phelon, not only display the expected business insight but they convey a real sense of community."
Chuck Kelly, Owner, Flowers by Webster
“Flowers by Webster has enjoyed our membership with the chamber for many years. It’s a great way to always feel connected to the business leaders that care about what happens to our friends and neighbors in greater Westfield. When we look to purchase goods and services we first look at our customer list and then to the chamber membership. We seldom have to look any further.”
Prob Reshamwala, Owner, Mina's Wine & Spirits
The Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce is invested in our local economy. One example is the event they put together for Shop Small this year. It was great and fun for Westfield because Westfield always likes to shop local. The “shop to win” event was very successful. I never saw so many people walk through my shop. We were excited to be a part of a fun event that supports downtown businesses. Easy to use, Easy to win game!! Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in day out. Important thing is not being afraid to a take chance.
Christine Bissonnette, Owner, Optimum Health Therapeutic Massage
"A few years back Kate Phelon came to my business and asked if I wanted to join the chamber, I told her only if she sat with me to listen to the specific needs of a downtown small business first. Not only did she listen, but she listened for about two hours! She really cared about my needs. I have had my small business in downtown Westfield for 14 years and this was a first for me, to really be heard. Kate and the staff at The Westfield Chamber of Commerce have really stepped up to include specific steps to help the downtown Westfield small business owners. And their efforts have had a dramatic positive effect on my business."
