Following almost 35 years at their current location, the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce is packing this week and preparing to move to new, larger headquarters by the end of the month. The chamber finalized their purchase on Thursday of the former First Missouri State Bank branch at 1846 E. Jackson Blvd. and will be moving over the next couple of weeks. The bank relocated its Jackson branch earlier this month to 2480 E. Main St., which made the bank building on East Jackson Boulevard available.The chamber has worked out of the former Jackson post office building, at the corner of East Main and South Hope streets, since 1984. The organization sold the building in April, but has remained there under a month-to-month lease arrangement. Officials say, the new location gives the chamber an opportunity to grow and they’ve been a little land locked at their current location, but they have plans and strategies for growth in the next few months.”Top of FormBottom of FormThe former First Missouri State Bank building was constructed in 1991 and will give the chamber more space and parking than it currently has.
