Culver City Chamber launches Shop Local/Economic Recovery site

The Culver City Chamber of Commerce has proudly launched a companion site to its flagship website on March 1. 

The new site, found at, promotes tourism and commerce in Culver City during a vital time in the pandemic’s recovery phase. It’s an extension of the Chamber’s “shop local” consumer program that’s designed to generate local spending and visitation to Culver City businesses. 

The ultimate goal is centered around boosting economic recovery in Culver City we all thrive; and ensuring that all businesses thrive. 

“This website really addresses an underemphasized issue, which is life post-pandemic,” Colin Diaz, Chamber President and CEO, explained. “How do businesses communicate that they are open, what they have to offer, and how they can be reached? If these questions aren’t answered, many businesses will not survive the recovery process of this pandemic.” 

“ does this by allowing businesses to use our platform to market their eat-shop-stay-play options. Overtime, this will be an invaluable resource as our City currently doesn’t have anything like it for residents or visitors.” 

Listings on are an exclusive benefit for Culver City Chamber members. They amplify businesses by letting the community know that Chamber members are open for business and ready to serve Culver City and its surrounding neighborhoods. Businesses that fall within the Eat, Shop, Stay, or Play categories have received a complimentary listing on the site. 

When asked about the new site, CEO of George Petrelli Steakhouse (one of Culver City’s longest and most loved establishments), Marie Petrelli said the following, “The new website is amazing. It allows people a site to go to and find out all that Culver City has to offer. There are many new places that I didn’t even know about and look forward to visiting.” 

She continued, saying “It is a site that long-time Culver City residents and visitors can go to enjoy and explore what Culver City has to offer. It also provides a network that businesses like mine can utilize to promote other businesses within our Culver City, which our patrons might enjoy as well.”

The website, which was also made by Chamber member DigiCal- Web Designs, acts as a visual directory where visitors get to experience the businesses before stepping foot in the establishments. 

Restaurants, hotels, and like businesses can feature their menu directly from their listing; retailers can place “deals” and “specials” for products and services available to the consumer; gyms, fitness centers, entertainment venues, and theaters can spotlight their schedules and offerings seamlessly.
