News from the CV Chamber of Commerce

Supporting Your Community . . . ‘Shop Small/Shop Local’

January was a “month for the ages” with COVID-19 vaccination confusion, election/political turbulence and the constant flow of Amazon, UPS, FedEx and USPS vehicles circling our streets. February is the month for each of us to take a deep breath, relax and concentrate on what’s really important … family, friends, those we love and care about, and supporting our incredibly resilient Crescenta Valley business community.

A short drive or stroll along Foothill Boulevard and/or Honolulu Avenue reveals a number of businesses/restaurants that are now open for your shopping and dining enjoyment. Whether it be early morning coffee, a quick bite to eat outdoors, a purchase of high-quality jewelry, professional floral arrangements, clothing for everyone in the family or even home improvement items, our local shops and businesses have it … and there’s plenty of free parking.

Feb. 14 – Valentine’s Day – is fast approaching. Looking for something special? Montrose Shopping Park’s Casa Cordoba restaurant is offering Valentine gift baskets featuring wine, chocolates, a heart shape soap or candle, even a Valentine bear, and more from Montrose merchants. For more information contact Casa Cordoba at (818) 937-4445 or email

Flowers are always a Valentine’s “hit” and two of the most creative floral arrangers anywhere may be found locally. Crescenta Valley Flowers (818-957-2631), winner of the CV Weekly’s “The Finest” the past four years, is located at 2900 Foothill Blvd., La Crescenta and Divine Fleurs (818-369-7650) is located at 3924 Foothill Blvd., La Crescenta. Make sure to call and order early so you don’t miss out.

February Emergency Preparedness Tip: Be prepared for all emergency scenarios, including the possible loss of power from a “planned shut off” by SCE or the City. Review and update your family emergency contact information, check all items in your home/vehicle emergency kits including the replacement of all dated batteries, and have an ample supply of fresh water and

canned/packaged food items for a minimum of three to seven days. Don’t be caught short in the next emergency situation.
