About Us

The City of Commerce is a community of over 6,000 located near the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains. Our City is set along I-85 just 90 minutes north of Atlanta making us perfectly situated to offer small city charm with easy access to big city amenities. In addition to being in a great location, Commerce is a full service city that provides our businesses and residents with electricity, natural gas and water/sewer utilities at competitive rates. While the city footprint is 8.3 square miles, we often provide essential services into the surrounding community.

At the turn of the century, Commerce earned its name as a major player in the textiles market with mills and clothing manufacturers positioned central to the railroad. Today, Commerce's name is still synonymous with business. Our downtown is one of the oldest main street programs in the state focused on historic preservation and redevelopment. At the same time, Commerce is known for business friendly leadership and we strive to create an atmosphere that allows businesses to take advantage of opportunities that will make them successful.
