Wireless Plus, Inc. also joined the Chamber this month. Located at 4000 E. Foothill Blvd., they’re known to some as the Verizon store at the corner of Lowell and Foothill. Sometimes shopping for technology on the Internet is not good enough – you need to talk to a real, live person. Wireless Plus, Verizon Wireless Retailer is your one-stop shop for all the newest phone gear. Their in-store personnel can help set you up with the right phones and services for you and your family. Call them at (818) 542-9855 for more information.
Just across the parking lot from them is our fifth new member – Albertsons. We’re happy to have them back in the neighborhood and proud to have assisted with their first Customer Appreciation Day last month, a smashing success. They’ll be having another three-day event July 22, 23 and 24. Fresh barbecue will definitely be on the agenda that weekend but customers can get their hands on their delicious barbecue chicken, ribs and tri-tip every Saturday! Rubbed with their own special seasoning and slow-barbecued, the meats are tender, juicy and, until around 4 p.m. each Saturday, ready for sharing at your next backyard gathering. I hear their tri-tip sandwiches are killer as well. Call (818) 248-2745 for more information.
Welcome to all our new members. The Chamber is here to support you. Remember: “Our Business is Your Business.”
