Poll: Should the city be preserving old business signs as historical items?

Poll: Should the city be preserving old business signs as historical items?

Let us know your thoughts!

While Penticton facade has been consistently upgraded over the decades as businesses close and open, certain elements of the city’s past have survived the change.

For example, the iconic Coates Hardware sign still resides on the back of 251 Main Street despite the business’ closure decades ago. For residents who remember the business, it serves as a reminder of simpler times and the city’s heritage.

So do you think signs like these within the City of Penticton should be preserved? Can you think of other examples of old signage that currently remains in the city?
