A Joint Business Signage Program for Duarte Businesses

The Duarte Chamber of Commerce and the City of Duarte have partnered together to launch the “Duarte Stronger Together” program, designed to support businesses and to let the community know that Duarte businesses are open and ready to serve.  

It is available to businesses that are currently open, and those that will be reopening in the future. 

The Chamber and City developed “Duarte Stronger Together” branded “We’re Open for Business” banners and window signs that will come with several unique features to assist businesses during these exceedingly difficult times. 

1. As a low-cost way of advertising, the City will subsidize $30 per business to be applied to either the specialized 8’ x 3’ banner or 18” x 24” window cling. The net cost of the banner to the business will be $25 and $3 for the window cling (which includes sales tax). The business has the option to purchase the accompanying item at the discounted rate of $53 for the banner and $30 for the clings (tax not included). 

2. No permit or permit fee will be required for these banners. 

3. Additionally, the City will allow these banners and clings to be hung through December 31, 2020 with no permit requirement. 

4. In addition to the “Duarte Stronger Together” banners, the City will waive permit fees for all temporary banners through the end of the year. A City permit is required for all these temporary banners. Check with the City for more information. 

A limited quantity of these banners will be available at the subsidized rate. Once the subsidized quantity is depleted, the banners and clings will be available at their discounted rate of $53 for the banner and $30 for the clings (tax not included) through mid-December. 

“The Duarte Chamber has been working tirelessly to help businesses get information and the support they need, while informing the community of the businesses status on our website and through our social media,” stated Sheryl Lefmann, Executive Director and CEO of the Duarte Chamber. “We are coming up with creative ways, such as the Duarte Stronger Together program, to accomplish this. 

The City took that idea and enhanced it,”Duarte’s City Manager Dan Jordan echoed Lefmann’s enthusiasm for the program, stating, “This program demonstrates the wonderful partnership the City and Chamber share in addressing the needs of local businesses. Duarte has a history of being Business Friendly and this is a shining example.”  Banners are available only through the Duarte Chamber of Commerce. 

To order, contact Sheryl Lefmann at (626) 205-5664 (cell), Monday-Friday 8:00-4:00. The banners will be hand delivered to businesses. Duarte Stronger Together.
