"The comeback is always stronger than the setback".

We're coming back LG! Slowly but surely.

Wear your mask & wash your hands!
Los Gatos Open for Business - Part 2!
Please note that this video features some of our LG salons, as it was filmed when we expected salons to be open. They are allowed to do some services outside now, and we hope that they will be back in full shortly!
Protect Los Gatos
Maybe you've noticed these green signs around town? The Chamber and the Town are embarking on a Protect Los Gatos campaign, reminding people to social distance and wear a mask. We've placed signs around town: on A-frames, in store windows and on pop-up patios. Please keep us all safe!

If you'd like a sign, stop by the Chamber office and pick one up.

Support the Chamber
With your support we will be able to keep our doors open and continue to advocate for our businesses and Los Gatos community.
With every donation of $50 or more, you will receive a Friends of the Chamber decal, pictured above. Cats come in orange, blue or green.
The Chamber of Commerce, just like every business, is experiencing financial impacts due to COVID-19. Our ability to generate revenue has been greatly diminished due to the protocols necessary to control this pandemic. Despite all of these challenges, we have made our resources, webinars, and public policy advocacy available to the general public during this challenging time. 

If you are interested in supporting our efforts to be a catalyst, convener and a champion for a stronger community, we would be grateful for your financial contribution of any size. We look forward to continuing to serve you all.
