News from the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce

Slowly but Surely

The second month of the year is off to a good start and we couldn’t be more thrilled for our small business members and community. While the pandemic is still very prevalent, things are definitely starting to look up. Vaccinations are in process and slowly our small town is reopening. We have high hopes that everyone will keep practicing COVID-19 safety measures to ensure we continue on this upward path.

We have a few exciting events coming up and we look forward to the possibility of resuming some of our end-of-the-year bigger events. Stay tuned!

There are also sponsorships available for our upcoming webinars (opportunities as low as $50). Get in contact with us for more information.

Stay safe, be well and please keep supporting local businesses (if Amazon has it, one of our shops does, too, just let us know what item you are seeking and we can advise you of the shop that has it!).
