COVID-19 Retail Kits

COVID-19 Retail Kits are now available to downtown businesses thanks to a partnership between the Peterborough Downtown Business Improvement Area and Signarama Peterborough.

The DBIA will be giving away a limited supply of 50 kits to DBIA members and associate members to help businesses as they reopen, allowing them to keep their customers and staff safe.

“We’re excited to see some of our businesses re-open, but it needs to be done safely and responsibly,” says Terry Guiel, Executive Director of the DBIA. “These kits are a great starting place to help our businesses keep their staff safe and help customers maintain social distancing. It’s encouraging to see so many of our long-established local businesses reaching out and helping others through this crisis.”

The kits include a clear germ barrier on a stand that can be placed on a retail counter as well as locally-sourced hand sanitizer, masks and vinyl graphics to provide instruction and direction for customers.

“Signarama and Fully Promoted Peterborough remain committed with this contribution, to help Peterborough businesses to rebuild and reopen safely,” says Morgan Smith, President and CEO of Signarama and Fully Promoted Peterborough. “Please keep yourself and your families safe in the months to come. We’re hoping that this package of separation brings us closer together.”

Downtown businesses interested in receiving a COVID Retail Kit can contact Terry Guiel at terry@downtownptbo.ca. Kits are also available at a cost of $239 plus HST by contacting Signarama Peterborough 705-742-9994 or emailing morgan@signaramapeterborough.com. Custom guards and graphics are also available.

The priority of the DBIA is the safety of the community. For people looking to stay home, the DBIA recently launched a new digital marketplace — TheBoro.ca — to help people shop local online.
