Downtown Covina seems to be in a bit of a renaissance. After the Covina Center for Permforming Arts opened last October, a number of new businesses have opened. Among the newest members to the downtown are Claros, a wine bar on Badillo, and Rude Dogs is expanding. They also opened the new parking garage a few weeks ago.
The owner of the performing arts center said business has been great. So good that shows, including the Christmas Carol, are sold out.
Of course, not everything is merry in downtown. Several businesses are closing.
More on this story later in the week.
