It has been a privilege to serve as the President of the Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce for the past two years.

As my term comes to a close, I would like to thank all of our member businesses for their loyalty to the Chamber and its mission. It is important to remember and to note, that the Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce has been an enduring and thriving representative of the business community for more than 60 years. As a small business model, I hope everyone can agree that this is quite an accomplishment.

I would also like to thank the Chamber Board of Directors for its dedication and willingness to always step to the plate to support the many Chamber sponsored events held throughout the year.  It is these events that enable us to support our ambitious mission.

The past two years were certainly filled with challenges for many of us. Hurricane Irene swept through in 2011 taking a tremendous toll on businesses and homeowners alike. Resolutely, we rallied, and even for the downtown businesses that were hardest hit, the town was quickly on its feet and welcoming customers. 

And who can forget about the snow storm this past October that seemingly, with little warning, dumped more than a foot of snow on our roads and sidewalks. But again we rallied.

If you walk throughout the downtown, Welcome signs and Coming Soon signs can be seen throughout.  Red Carpet Boutique is moving from its current location along the west side of Millburn Avenue to one of downtown’s prime locations at the crossroads of Millburn Avenue and Main Street, formerly occupied by Pierre Deux. Just a few doors down from Red Carpet’s current location, the bikes are spinning at Flywheel, which has already developed a strong following of fitness buffs. And the list of new and thriving businesses continues with Curate, Seed 387, Lynne’s, Unwined and Contessa Designs.

The Salad House, owned and operated by the renowned Cioffi family, recently opened for business, offering a terrific menu of healthy create your own salads, flatbread pizzas and much more.

Other very new additions to the flourishing restaurant scene are La Cucina de Clemenza on Millburn Avenue, the many new eateries along Essex Street including La Pergola, Café Luna, and Cara Mia and Moonshine Modern Supper Club on Main Street. And of course the Red Mango craze has hit Millburn also, with a welcoming location near the Bagel Chateau. And speaking of the Bagel Chateau, this decades old Township institution will be moving to a new location just a few doors away.  

The most important thing residents and business people alike can do is to wholeheartedly support all of our local merchants. When shopping and dining always Think Millburn-Short Hills First.

The Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce is committed to doing all it can to develop programs to promote Millburn Township as a premier location in which to live, work and do business. Our TV 36 Cable Show Chamber Chat is dedicated to introducing the viewing public to our business community.

Another initiative is a branding campaign to delineate the distinct shopping areas within the community. Plans are underway to purchase street banners for the Short Hills section of Millburn Avenue, Chatham Road, and others.

In February, the Chamber hosted its “Come Together” Gala to honor just some of the Township’s not-for-profit organizations. More than 200 people joined us at the Hilton Short Hills, including former Governor Brendan Byrne and Congressman Leonard Lance. This event raised more than $4,000.00 for twelve township not-for-profit organizations.

Networking events both within our Chamber and in partnership with other local Chambers are held periodically throughout the year.

And always remember to check our website at www.millburnshorthillschamber.com for all the latest news and events, and a directory of our more than 200 Chamber members.

If your business is not yet a Chamber member… why not?   Join The Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce Family and see results today!

 

Sincerely,


Shayne Austin Miller,  President
