Shop Punta Gorda First

by Carol Rose  April 29, 2007

At the April 17, 2007 meeting, the Board of Directors of the Punta Gorda Civic Association Board formalized our policy of purchasing goods and services from local businesses whenever possible.  The policy states,

Whenever possible PGICA will give first consideration to our advertisers, Shop Punta Gorda, and local businesses in purchasing goods and services and encourage our groups and members to do the same.  These procurements must be competitive and provide satisfactory service.

Almost all of the businesses advertising in the Directory and Commentator are local. This advertising income not only covers the cost of printing and mailing the Directory and Commentator but helps us pay expenses.  Please use advertisers when ever possible.  Tell them you saw their ad in the Commentator and/or Directory.  Thank you.
