Shout Out
"Vicki Smith from Banner Bank has been the treasurer of our Chamber for over 15 years, starting with the original Greater Bothell Association, before we even became a Chamber. 
She has helped with everything from setting up our financial records and our QuickBooks reporting, bill paying and payroll. 
Vicki has been such a large part of establishing this Chamber and helping us become the financially sound organization that we are today.  We cannot imagine the past decade without her and feel she has certainly earned a break.
Thank you so much Vicki for all that you and Banner Bank have done for this Chamber."

Foggy Noggin Named Top Nano Brewery
              , 50 Amazing Nanobreweries in 50 States, has listed one top nanobrewery for each state in the U.S., putting Foggy Noggin as the Washington winner.

Billed as "one of the world's smallest production breweries," Jim Jamison brews English-style ales with a tiny half-barrel system out of his detached garage in a subdivision in the Seattle suburb of Bothell. With locals flocking to his property to try these awesome brews, Jamison even had to go so far as to build a bathroom facility next to the garage to keep patrons from having to use the one in his house.

The Bothell Florist to Renovate and Rename as "Emerald City Florists"
The Bothell Florist Bouquet There are lots of big changes happening at The Bothell Florist! The building is undergoing a major renovation as well as the store.  The current location will be divided into two retail spaces and The Bothell Florist will occupy the space next to Julios.


The Bothell Florist will also be changing the name of the store to unite all 3 of their current retail locations. The new name will be "Emerald City Florists". 


The Bothell store will be the first to undergo this transformation with the Bellevue Crossroads and Melrose Seattle locations following suit. 


The Bothell Florist could not be more excited for the future of downtown Bothell and are thrilled to be a part of this next chapter! 


They are 100% open and operating during the construction so please excuse the mess and remember you can order online 24/7 at
