Business is Booming in Jasper as New Companies Set Up Shop


JASPER -- There have been plenty of ribbon cuttings across the city in recent weeks, and even more are planned for later in the month.

This Thursday, the Jasper Chamber will host a ribbon cutting at the new LIVEwire co-working space.  An open house will follow until 6 p.m.  It’s located at 402 E. 13th Street in Jasper.

Another ribbon cutting is planned for October 17th at the new Digestive Care Center at 647 West 2nd Street in Jasper.  The ribbon cutting is at 4 p.m.

Last week, Hosparus Health held a ribbon cutting on the city’s north side and I’m told a national dental chain will be built next to it.  TJ Maxx hosted a ribbon cutting Sunday on its new store in the Germantown Shopping Center, and Pub N Grub is planning to move its operations to Jasper later in the year.  They are currently based on the Patoka.
