About Us

Welcome to the Maple Valley-Black Diamond Chamber

Your guide to business in the greater Maple Valley & Black Diamond Areas

     

On behalf of the Greater Maple Valley-Black Diamond Chamber of Commerce, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. It is a resource that is useful every day in seeking out the goods and services you need. Explore this website to find job postings and hot deals by our member businesses as well as a community calendar of events and activities.
The Chamber's primary purpose is to be a strong advocate for business in our community. The Chamber provides a forum for our members to identify and address critical issues and concerns. As a result, our legislative and business development action committees influence decision makers at the local, county, and state levels.

Our business community is also strengthened by networking, referrals, partnerships, and exchange of information made possible through membership in the Chamber. With its many activities, the Chamber also identifies and develops leaders. Business owners are vested in the overall health and well being of our communities and bring their successful business skills and practices to the greater community.

Once known for coal, timber, and railroads, as well as for the many vacation resorts that once stood along our rivers and lakes, our communities are changing rapidly into strong suburban centers. This directory is just one
example of how the Chamber is working to connect and communicate with our growing communities.

In 2011,  Maple Valley received Family Circle Magazine’s designation of being among the ‘10 Best Towns For Families”; in 2013, Bloomberg Businessweek announced Maple Valley as among one of the ‘50 Best Places To Raise Kids in 2013.’  This just affirms what we already knew – it’s a great place to live because of affordable homes, quality schools, access to health care, green space, low crime rate, financial stability, and a spirit of giving.

In Black Diamond, just to the south of Maple Valley along State Route 169, excitement is growing as YarrowBay Holdings moves closer to breaking ground on The Villages and Lawson Hills Planned Communities.  These communities are designed to include mixed-use and walkable neighborhoods that will retain that treasured small town character.  The spectacular views of majestic Mount Rainier and the awesome power of the Green River, still carving out the steep cliffs of the gorge, characterize the natural wonders of this area.
 
Our Chamber values our businesses, our residents, our schools, and our visitors.  We love to talk about our communities so give us a call - we welcome the opportunity to talk to you!

Flowers by Robin, LLC

Robin is amazing!  I was having a bad day on a Saturday and my husband was out of town and wanted to send flowers to cheer me up.  He called around to a lot of the chain florist shops and they all said they were done delivering for the day even though they were 5 minutes away.  He happened to come across Flowers by Robin in his search so called her and she happened to be open on a Saturday for Grandparents Day.  She was so kind and willing to help my husband even though it was getting late in the afternoon.  She made up the most amazing arrangement I've ever received and hand delivered it with a big smile that turned my day around.  The flowers were very fresh and have lasted almost 2 weeks.  We will use Robin for all our floral needs from now on!!

Robin helped us fill an order for one of our customers. Wiring out shop-to-shop can always be a bit scary, but Robin really took great care of our customer. She was able to get the order out in about an hour even though we were past standard same day delivery cut off. She was also kind enough to send us a photo without us even asking for it. The arrangement was expertly designed, the kind of arrangement I'd send out of our own shop. We will be using you in the future!

I am the daughter of an amazing floral designer, who worked in Chicago at some pretty incredible venues. So my standards and expectations are beyond high. I've watched Robin's work as a professional grow in design, style, and creativity. It was my extreme pleasure to receive an arrangement from her recently. And by chance, my florist of a mom was in town. We both fell in love with her design and use of color and texture. For fussy girls like us, Robin's arrangement was the highlight of our week. On my counter, sat 3 other flower arrangements and hers just shined. Beyond all that, the prep that went into the flowers was evident by how long they lasted, the brilliance of color they retained, and the lack of dropping leaves/petals. Hey did I mention, Robin is a great lady too and local! Give her a call, you won't be disappointed and you certainly will have the opportunity to impress the next person you are sending flowers to. Thanks Robin!

The short version is I would Highly Recommend Robin!!!!!  She has a rare talent and is super personable. The kind of flower shop and Business person who would be your number one go to for flowers!
I live in Seattle and wanted to find some one in the south end to send flowers to my sister in law who has had 4 deaths in the last 9 months. I was searching on line, looking for some one that had a good sense of style and artistic flair not your usual cookie-cutter bouquet.
After scrolling page by page by pure chance I found  Flowers by Robin.  As soon as I saw the photos of her work I knew she was my gal! Her gift to make beauty using the natural elements of nature, was a rare find and just what I was looking for plus, the added bonus was that she was in my price range. I spoke to Robin, myself on the phone gave her my thoughts of what I was attempting to do and told her from her photos I totally trusted her style and flair. Robin has a gift and it reflects in all her work.  The home she was delivering them to has a very aggressive dog that I pre-warned Robin about. She was kind enough to hand-deliver them herself. I revived a text from my sister in law saying this " Thank you for your thoughtfulness and the beautiful flowers. The colors brighten my day and put a smile on my face. That was so sweet of you! 
OXOXOX "  Bingo! Thank you Robin for your beautiful work together we hit a home run!

Robin came through at the last minute for me, and even threw in an extra item that I requested, the perfect complement to the beautiful flower arrangement she created! My friend was thrilled with the flowers! The hand blown glass vase looks gorgeous, too! Highly recommended!
