When businesses join the Hancock Chamber, they are invited to host a ribbon cutting as a way of introducing themselves to the local community. Ribbon cuttings are meant to celebrate a business opening or expansion and to inform the community of a relocation. They foster community connection, celebrate a business’s achievements and enhance a business’s reputation.

Since May, the Hancock Chamber has hosted the following ribbon cuttings:

Lollie & Pop: A Children’s Shoppe – This adorable children’s boutique has clothing, accessories and gifts for children up to 12 years of age. They have extensive lines for girls and boys and even have an heirloom closet with Christening gowns, First Communion gifts and Rosaries.  Visit them at 1247 Highway 90 in Bay St. Louis or online at Follow them on Facebook & Instagram.

Crane Builders – Crane Builders have been longtime members and have a new location! They’ve been busy creating some of the area’s most beautiful homes and it was our honor to celebrate their commitment to Hancock County as we cut their ribbon. They boast an extensive portfolio of custom builds, historical renovations and remodels. They did a fabulous job renovating their current building, which they share with Lollie + Pop! You can visit them at 1247 Highway 90 in Bay St. Louis or online at and Follow them on Facebook & Instagram.

Diamondhead School of Fine Arts – DSFA has grown from one adult ballet class to offering multiple classes in art, music, theater, dance, language and more! They are getting ready for their 8th theater production, “Cinderella Waltz” July 26th – 28th.
