City Wide Sales are on the way the weekend of July 28th. As always we are asking for our businesses to get involved by doing something that will attract people to your store. Then let us know what you're doing and we will post it for you. There will be a lot of activity that weekend with Ride Richmond and the Vintage Market going on as well. Don't miss this opportunity to meet new people.

Verlinde Insurance is an Independent Insurance Agency and will work hard for you to protect your most prized possessions. Many of the carriers they represent offer discounts on both commercial and personal policies for being a member of the Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce.
Verlinde Insurance is excited to announce their new referral program where every time you refer a friend or family member you will receive a $5 Tim Horton's Gift Card and Verlinde Insurance will donate $10 to the charity of your choice. More details can be found at www.referverlinde.com.
This is the last week to take advantage of this offer through WGRT Radio. As a bonus, any new member within the last 3 months will get a complimentary live radio interview. Please let me know if you're interested. Once we hit 20 businesses I will send invoices for the $92 to each participant.
Could you take a moment to help us out?
