A portion of Walnut Street between Washington and Jefferson streets was temporarily closed Thursday to allow McHale Sign Co. employees to rescue an iconic sign that has hung over Elmore Pharmacy for many years.

Employees heard a loud crash and came outside to see the sign hanging by one cable and the awning damaged, said owner Bianca Bradford.

 

“The awning is busted, but there was no one under it when the sign fell,” Bradshaw said. “That’s the important part. That everyone is okay.”

 

Bradford said she is hoping to see the sign reattached as soon as possible. While she did not know exactly how old the sign is, the neon part of the pharmacy sign has not worked for at least 25 years.

 

 

Elmore has been in the building at 401 Washington St. since 1906 and is the oldest operating pharmacy in California, having been in existence since 1861, Bradshaw said. The company first became established in the city of Tehama and then moved around to a few locations before landing at the current one.

 

Red Bluff police and fire departments responded about 3:30 p.m. Thursday to assist with traffic control until the sign company could respond from Redding. No injuries were reported, said Red Bluff Fire Chief Ray Barber.

Sounds like a good time to properly repair and service the neon portions but the frame is probably shot and customer will want LEDs.

I love these calls, Lots of excitement and fun work.  

And the public loves the show also. 

Most customers want the sign completely redone and installed to match the old sign .....

Guaranteed work from the start to finish

    • @southernsigns  I did not nor have not.   I'm not aware of anyone using these for outdoor applications but because their such a small diameter I imagine based on typical cabinet depths you would need to space them pretty close otherwise a lot of hot spots and you're limited to use based on their length.

Yep, Yep, Yep, one day maybe we we should combine a few minds and write a long detailed book for the industry and consumers.  Something that's always been on my mind.  Aimed more for the consumers & large retailers, because their the ones getting all the incorrect information by the ill advised/educated in our industry   B.  Starting to see that more.  Everyone's looking to put their hand out so they can get "their$"  Not seeing it here in my neck of the woods.     On a side note.  This article made 600+ reads in less than 48 hours.  A lot of reads were by large retailers who read/follow this site often.

    • Nice job Erik.  Couple of comments on the above.  A. If you are in cold weather and using Argon gas for Mercury tubes, why not just throw them in the dumpster first.  Anyone in cold weather that wants the mercury filled tubes to light uses K-4 gas otherwise even a 60ma tranny may not light bright. B. All this retrofit talk failed to mention the listing already on the sign letters. Parts of our state are already requiring permits for the retrofit of letters or cabinets to LED.  I doubt this will hit the boonies as hard as metro areas but beware of code enforcement.  I didn't see that in the Image 360 bullshit.
