The locally published booklet of advertisers we get at home each month has proven to be a life saver more than once.
Our twenty-three-year-old AC quit on July 4th. At 91 degrees, heat was literally seeping through the walls. The next morning the inside temperature had dropped to 84 but rose quicker than the sun. Armed with the ad booklet, the quest began. Half the battle was won by knowing we did not have a quick-fix problem: we needed a new unit. The second call was the earliest appointment; their ad priced the product we needed and they offered free estimates. Within an hour they had the contract and we had cool comfort the next day. Everybody wins.
Keep the booklet. Local independent companies want our business.
