CHADDS FORD, Pa. - With the launch of a glove-compartment-sized directory, Verizon Yellow Pages delivers another easy way to find local businesses. Measuring a handy 6.5" by 8.5," the Wilmington Verizon Yellow Pages Companion DirectoryTM is convenient for busy consumers on the go and is the perfect size to keep in the car or to tuck in a purse or backpack.
"The slimmer size of Verizon's companion directory makes the yellow pages portable, perfect for keeping in a car," said Paula Hynes, marketing manager for Verizon Yellow Pages. "With so many phone calls being made on the run these days, people need local business information at their fingertips."
The smaller books are being distributed to homes across the city, along with the standard 2006 Wilmington Verizon Yellow Pages directory. Consumers can look inside the full-size book for a sweepstakes game piece and a chance to instantly win $3 million -- or one of 64 Hummer® H3s or thousands of other great prizes. And, as a special way to thank shoppers for making the Verizon Yellow Pages the preferred directory in Wilmington1, one lucky person who attends the 28th Annual Winterthur Point to Point this Sunday, May 7, will win a Hummer H3.
Verizon Yellow Pages publishes companion directories in about 150 markets nationwide, covering more than 20 states. Companion directory advertising can be purchased as an add-on to advertising in the larger Verizon Yellow Pages directory.
In addition to companion directories and the standard Verizon Yellow Pages directory, local residents can find business information at Verizon SuperPages.com, the nation's most advanced Internet yellow pages, or on Verizon Wireless cell phones via SuperPages On the Go.
People who don't receive their new 2006 Wilmington Verizon Yellow Pages by the end of May can call 1-800-888-8448 or go to www.directorystore.com to request copies.
