ASHLAND, OH - Two new Ashland businesses were officially welcomed to the community on Friday with dual ribbon cuttings held by the Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce.

"We do probably twenty to twenty-five ribbon cuttings a year," said Barbara Lange, President and CEO of the Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce. "Having two on the same day is really exciting. We're pretty excited about that and for what it means for Ashland. Business is booming - our storefronts on Main Street and 2nd Street are filling up, and that's just music to our ears."

The two businesses, Ashland Combat Club and Ashland Craft Vinyl, are located within the same building and have storefronts on each side. City officials are thrilled to have the two businesses join the Ashland downtown business community.

"Without question, new life is being breathed into our downtown. Especially here on Main Street," said Mayor Matt Miller. "It's so exciting to watch all of these entrepreneurs pursue their dreams right here in the City of Ashland. We have so many diverse opportunities right here on Main Street - from candies and nuts to chocolates and cupcakes, to a brewery and more. There are so many people that are pursuing their entrepreneur dreams right here on our Main Street."

Ashland Combat Club, a Jujitsu-style self-defense dojo, is located at 106 Main Street. Ashland Craft Vinyl, a vinyl-specific arts and crafts supply store, is located at 125 East 2nd Street. Each business has only been in operation for a short period of time but found early success due to the community's open-arms embrace.
