CARRABASSETT VALLEY — The Franklin County Chamber of Commerce is preparing to open a northern branch in May at the site formally used as an Information Center.

The building is located across from Ayotte’s Store on Route 27 and near the airport, said Lorna Nichols, executive director of the Franklin County Chamber.

The building was closed for several years, she said. The Chamber has secured an agreement with the town to use the property.

A grand opening of the branch office will be held in early May and will provide an opportunity to reach out to more people and provide more visibility to county businesses, she said.
