PASO ROBLES, CA – In support of our local businesses, Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association’s Executive Director Norma Moye, and Lifetime Board Member Jan Hop, have brought back a campaign poster from our past. Similar posters were distributed by Main Street and posted on our local businesses’ windows during the Great Recession of 2008. Just as our community has overcame past economic challenges in our community, they’re once again, eager to reach out to local businesses and community members with a poster that sends a positive message.

“Due to the economy, we’ve laid off Gloom, Doom, and Bad News,” the poster reads. It continues, “That means when you walk in here, you’ll only find people who are upbeat about our country, about business, about people, and about life! So stop in any time. You’ll find Optimism, Faith, and Good News working full-time!”

“It’s time for Main Street to get back to business as much as possible, in accordance with our local and state officials,” says Norma Moye. “We hope all of our local businesses will pick up a poster and display it to spread the word.”

Posters are available for purchase for $5.00 at the Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association office, located at 835 12th Street, Suite D, Paso Robles. Due to current COVID-19 shelter-in-place order actively in place, please contact Main Street to arrange pick-up time in advance. Contact Main Street via phone at 805-238-4103 or send an email to Paso Robles Main Street Association is a non-profit corporation, (#77-0196830), established to actively restore, promote and enhance the economic vitality and unique historical value of downtown Paso Robles, while maintaining a friendly, community atmosphere for all.

One thousand new posters were designed, printed, and donated to Main Street by Paso Robles Daily News and Access Publishing. “We are grateful to our local businesses and happy to help spread a positive message during this time of crisis,” says Scott Brennan, publisher of Paso Robles Daily News. “We thank our advertisers for making this donation possible.”
