Results from The Wire's Readership Survey: Thumbs Up

Thanks to the more than 13 score (that's 267, to be exact) of our readers who responded to last month's survey on how we can improve The Wire. Some takeaway highlights:
  • 90% read once a month or more
  • 80% read all or most of it
  • 85% feel the information applies to them or is at least worth reading
Respondents reported that they like it when we give cross streets when listing addresses, so we'll do more of that. They said they'd like to read more news about public safety, so we'll start giving you more of that, too. Also, they'd like a picture reminding them of the exact borders of the District - we're working on one and will share it with you soon.

And bless the heart of the one reader who asked for more puns in The Wire! Once a-pun a time, such wordplay pun-fortunately could result in pun-employment, so it's encouraging to see such a pun-damental shift in public pun-derstanding and acceptance. Therefore, by reader request, we'll sharpen our pun-cils and attempt to better pun-ctuate our copy.

Of course, we're open to feedback at ANY time, so if you want to ride the late train, please send your comments, critiques and constructive suggestions about how we can continue to make The Wire more readable and relevant. And, as always, please forward The Wire to your friends and colleagues and encourage them to subscribe at westchasedistrict.com.

What does it look like? Come to the market next week to find out!

The Gift Store Closing, 50% Off Sale Going On Now


Business is booming for Bob Siegrist over at the UPS Store, 11152 Westheimer (at Wilcrest). But after nearly 20 years of operating the adjoining Gift Store, he's decided to close its doors ( the UPS Store will remain open).

We're sad to say goodbye to The Gift Store - known for it's impressive selection of greeting cards, Christian-themed gifts, gourmet candy, wine gifts and candles - but we're happy to tell you that Bob has some amazing deals right now. "Everything in the store is 50 percent off," he said. "Last week I had someone spend $2,000 in here, which was really $4,000 worth of merchandise."

The sooner you buy out Bob's inventory, the sooner he can turn out the lights and relax a bit, so swing on by and stock up on cards and gifts for Easter and beyond. You can get the rest of the scoop from him at 713-781-0009.
