Still Shopping? Gift Cards to the Rescue!

Posted on December 22nd, 2020 by sheldon
Gift Cards Image

Are you still shopping?

It might be time to just get a gift card and let them decide themselves what they want. If you give a gift card that's from a small business, your gift does double duty by also supporting a small locally owned business.

We can help you do that with our gift card directory of Downtown Campbell. There are just shy of 30 small businesses in our downtown that you can get a gift card from and there are gift cards for all kinds of shops, eateries, and services for you to choose from.

Many of the cards can be purchased and delivered electronically so if waiting until the very last minute is just your style, you can run it down to the wire as you please. We hope you find our Gift Cards Directory helpful and thank you for supporting small businesses in these difficult times.

This past weekend, the generosity of the Campbell community was incredible!

Castlemont Elementary and the #SCCFD Sunnyoaks Fire Station hosted Toy Drive Drop-Off events this weekend. Just LOOK at all of the toys, games, stuffed animals, and sporting goods they collected!!

And see that cute piggy bank? A child donated the bank with coins inside to make sure another child has a gift to open this holiday.

We have a few weeks left and a few more collection events. Stay tuned for more info. Or, you can always pick something from our Wish List (at CampbellToyProgram.com) and order on Amazon-it will be shipped right to us.

Thank you to everyone who has donated, hosted a toy drive, has a collection barrel in their place of business, Home Church for storing all of the items, and to the community of Campbell for your support!

The Campbell Press is Back

Posted on December 9th, 2020 by Campbell Express

The Campbell Express was an early casualty of the Covid-19 pandemic, but just over six months after the last edition of the Campbell Express was published, it has returned under new ownership under the original name for the local newspaper in Campbell. As we close 2020, we bid farewell to the Campbell Express and welcome back The Campbell Press.

Here the front page of the first edition of the newly reborn The Campbell Press.

Santa Claus is Crusing through Town

Posted on December 4th, 2020 by Downtown Campbell

We have it on good authority that Santa Claus himself will be in Campbell this Sunday, December 6th and next Sunday, the 13th from 10am to 1pm.

He heard about the Campbell Toy Program and wanted to help so, led by some very special escorts, he will be cruising through Campbell neighborhoods, spreading holiday spirit and collecting toys.

Go to CampbellToyProgram.com to download a map of his route.

Then come out, wave hello, and support the Toy Program by donating new, unwrapped toys, games, and sporting goods that Saint Nick will gift to local children who may otherwise not have a very merry holiday.

Need ideas on what to purchase? There is a Wish List on the Toy Program website. There is always a need for items for older children and teens.

Feel free to SHARE this post to your feed - Santa would love nothing more than to see lots of Campbell-ites lining the streets (safely, of course) to show their holiday spirit and support the Toy Program.

You know how people were joking that April felt like an entire year? I think that's how December's going to feel.

A day after Governor Newsom warned all regions of the state of California to be prepared to enter a new Shelter-in-Place order once ICU capacity in each area's hospitals dips below 15%, the largest counties in the Bay Area made a joint decision to pull the emergency brake a week early rather than a week late.

This will hurt our already struggling businesses, but it's the right thing to do. Santa Clara County is already dangerously close to maxing out ICU capacity while hospitalizations are still ramping up and the expected surge from Thanksgiving gatherings hasn't even begun. Protecting ICU capacity saves lives from an entire range of preventable deaths, not just from Covid-19.

The new December Shelter-in-Place order will go into effect on Monday, December 7th (technically it starts at 10PM on Sunday).

Here's a summary of what to expect once the order takes effect.

  • No outdoor dining. Takeout and delivery is OK.

  • Barbershops, salons, and personal services (i.e. skin care) must close.

  • Retail will be allowed to operate at 20% of capacity.

  • Outdoor gyms can continue to operate.

  • The Farmers' Market is not affected.

How to Support Us: Shop safely at home by using our Gift Ideas Gallery and use our Shelter-in-Place Dining Guide to see what restaurants are open for takeout and delivery.

Those of you who are keen of eye may notice that retail capacity actually went up from 10% to 20%. Santa Clara County had previously imposed a stricter standard than the state was requiring, but decided to go with the State's guidelines. From what we know of our county's public health department, it's surprising, but not as random as it appears. With no outdoor dining, there's a reduced chance of crowding (and you don't need to take your mask off to shop). For many of our shops, a 10% increase in capacity only means an extra 1 or 2 people are allowed into the shop at the same time.

Retail will still be limited to 10% this weekend though, but you'll have an opportunity to get a last chance outdoor meal, haircut, facial, color, or massage. The earliest the Shelter-in-Place can be lifted will be January 4th, 2021.

The only way that's going to happen is if we all do as epidemiologists have been telling us to do all along. Avoid gatherings with people outside...Read More
