Welcome to the Brookline Chamber of Commerce

Message from the Chamber

Whether you’re a business owner, resident, or passing through, you can’t help feeling Brookline’s vibrant vibe. A trip to the bank or bookstore is anything but average. Exotic smells waft from nearby restaurants. Pedestrians speak in a variety of languages. Signs posted in storefronts display upcoming community events. People of all ages, cultural backgrounds, and interests like Brookline. Though community stakeholders aren’t short of opinions, all work together. And because of the diversity of ideas, our community remains strong. Comprised of seven unique and diverse business areas (Brookline Village, Chestnut Hill, Coolidge Corner, JFK Crossing, Putterham Circle, St Mary’s and Washington Square), Brookline is a place where you can get just about anything you need.

Brookline is a choice place to shop, dine, catch a movie, browse a bookstore, go for a run, practice yoga, play golf, get a massage, see a doctor, and accomplish whatever else might be on your to-do list. Brookline is favorite destination due to the exemplary collaboration between the Town, Business Community and Non-Profit Organizations. The Brookline Chamber is proud to serve as a resource for the Brookline business community and community at large.
