The Helena Chamber of Commerce printed signs for businesses closed during the pandemic.
The chamber says these signs are for businesses that have closed their doors due to the stay-at-home order.
The chamber wants to remind Helena that businesses may be closed but they are still awesome and will be back soon, as said on these signs. The inspiration for this idea came from a Facebook post of other businesses creating these signs outside of Helena.
These signs are free and can be picked up from several locations including the brochure box of the Helena Chamber of Commerce building.
“They’re for any businesses. We did not delineate chamber members or anything like that. We’re here for all businesses in Helena and we want to support them all. We thought it was a little cute and it showed a little chamber love, because we could say ‘hey, we’re not open but we’re still awesome and we will be back,” says Cathy Burwell, CEO of the Helena Chamber of Commerce.
You can also find these signs at both McDonald's locations and 1889 Coffee.
