Nichols, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Owego Pharmacy is the best new business in Tioga County, according to the Chamber of Commerce.

The pharmacy was one of many to receive awards Thursday during the Tioga Chamber of Commerce's annual dinner.

Many businesses were represented at the dinner, which was held at Tioga Downs. But only a select few walked away with hardware.

Central New York Oil and Gas was named Company of the Year. A spokesperson for that company says they're proud of the work they do and they love serving Tioga County.

"We're just happy to be here. There's a lot of good people in Tioga County. We're just proud to be in this community. We've got a beautiful facility," said Maureen Ball, Community Relations Manager for Central New York Oil and Gas.

Those weren't the only awards given out. The Newark Valley Historical Society claimed the Community Service Award, Van Horn Jewelers received the Beautification Award and Mario's Pizza in Owego was named the county's best small business.
