Business and Industry in Merrillville Indiana

With a location that is highly conducive to business, Merrillville is considered a hub for retail trade in Northwest Indiana. In fact, the population of Merrillville is estimated to more than double during the work week as people commute here for both work and play. When the Crown Point and Merrillville chambers made the decision to merge, one of the benefits was combining the Merrillville Chamber’s strong business climate with the Crown Point Chamber’s strong sense of community to create the most well-rounded services for chamber members.
