Free ads for affected businesses

Since the gas emergency has gone on far longer than anyone first imagined, many of our business friends have suffered dislocation, disruption, or a temporary halt of their business. We want to help these folks get through this jam, so, the Sun will run, at no charge, information ads submitted by our business friends.

This will help keep customers, and potential customers, informed about the status of each business — has it paused, has it moved, will it return to its location, has it reopened? For businesses who have reopened, these free notices will keep Georgetown informed.

Although Atmos may offer compensation for lost income, it cannot very easily compensate for lost future business and we want to help.

How it works:
1. Each ad will be headlined with the business name, address and contact information.

2. Below will be note to customers and potential customers that explains your situation, how customers can continue to do business with you, etc. Since space is limited please keep the text under 100 words. (Writing tip: imagine a potential customer called you to find out what was going on. Then just write what you would say — it's that easy.)

3. Put the business name in the subject line and email your information to: gas@wilcosun.com.

We'll gather these information ads on a single page so readers can easily scan through them all.
