What do people who have purchased and advertised in our print/digital products think about it? What kind of service does the team at the Vermont Community Newspaper Group provide? Here are some recent kudos from customers and clients:
"I have always used both the Stowe Reporter and the News and Citizen for advertising. For the past two years we have used this as a medium to promote specials and features colorful photos of food and drinks. Recently during this time of uncertainty our business has been changing weekly. We have been fortunate not only to update our customers on when we are open and what is available but we have gained many new customers in the past weeks. As a small business owner I strongly suggest using both the Stowe Reporter and the News and Citizen for your advertising needs."
Jason Pacioni, Owner, Black Diamond BBQ
"When I started my business, almost ten years ago, I was looking for a concise and reasonable advertising source that focused primarily on my town. Let’s be honest, everybody reads the Waterbury Record. It is a cost-effective way to get directly to the Waterbury resident without paying for exposure in areas outside your market."
Darrick Pitstick, Owner, Pack and Send PLUS
"Advertising with the Stowe Reporter gets people into our store. We have seen measurable success in our partnership with the Stowe Reporter. We hear it from regular customers and new ones all the time who come into our store looking for the wine we have featured in the Stowe Reporter. As our business grows, we look forward to continuing our partnership with the Stowe Reporter."
Mike Alekson, Owner, Fine Wine Cellars in Stowe
"Starting a new business can be scary. There are so many questions, especially about how to get the word out. When I decided to venture out on my own, the scariest part for me was advertising. How, where, when, and how much? Irene from the News & Citizen took those fears away. Her insight and knowledge about advertising helped tremendously and made it feel more natural and obtainable. I have received numerous responses since I began advertising. Strangers had cut my ad out and placed it on their refrigerator. Others had told friends about me and several of my previous clients had discovered I was on my own and reached out to me. It is a good feeling to know that in a world that has changed so much and with so many new ways to reach people, that the people of Lamoille County still read and are responding to our local newspaper. It is why I choose to live here, run a business here, and love it here!"
Cheryl Small, Willow Moon Wellness Holistic Health
"When I started my business in Stowe in 2009, I wanted to get the word out to as many people as possible in Lamoille County. The Stowe Reporter proved to be a great way to do just that! It reaches people that are connected to and care about the community we live in. I will continue to advertise to keep getting our information to the public. To all of the friendly and supportive staff at the Reporter a great big Thank You for being a partner in my current and future success."
Caren Merson, Edward Jones Investments
"Green Mountain Support Services has utilized employment advertising with the News & Citizen for many years. The support and fast response to our needs has always been topnotch. It’s nice to have a wonderful local paper that everyone enjoys and looks forward to reading weekly. Thank you News & Citizen for regarding our needs, so that we find great qualified candidates to work for our agency."
Janet Germaine, HR Coordinator, Green Mountain Support Services
"We’d be lost without the Stowe Reporter ... Always calls to remind us that our ads are up for renewal so we can keep getting our information to the public. A lot of our clients say they found us in the Stowe Reporter. Thank you for being here."
Bob and Peg Wadds, All Paws on Deck
"When my family moved to Vermont in June of 2016, we found the ad for our first home in the News & Citizen. Then, once we moved in, I saw the ad for the Morrisville Food Coop in the News & Citizen and I became a member, joined a volunteer committee and eventually joined the staff. I would say that this local paper helped provide us with the best welcome possible to our new community."
"Advertising in the News & Citizen and the Stowe Reporter has proved invaluable. ... The positive response Mac Nurse has received from the ad has been a boon for business, for both our business and all of the new customers that have come to have their Apple computers serviced. To top it all off, their graphics department created a perfectly designed ad that was both professional and clever. Thank you!"
Perry Heller, Mac Tech Expert, Mac Nurse
"We have advertised in the Waterbury Record since the day we opened our doors in 2007. It's been a great way to introduce people to our company and get our phone ringing!"
Cindy Lyons & Tony Walton, Owners, New England Landmark Realty
"Both of my stores use the News & Citizen, Stowe Reporter and Waterbury Record to get our message out. It’s the easiest way to reach a large number of people who are engaged with their community and care what’s going on. Those same customers shop locally. We rely on the papers’ professional staff to help us develop quality ads that resonate with our customers. The services of these papers are invaluable, and they have proven to be great members of our community."
Caleb Magoon, Owner, PowerPlay Sports/Waterbury Sports
"Ferro Jewelers opened its doors on a snowy day in December 2006 and the Stowe Reporter has been an integral part of our business since, chronicling our growth and helping us to establish our brand as one of Stowe’s foremost estate and custom jewelers. … Ferro Jewelers is proud to support the Stowe Reporter and the Stowe community. We look forward to working together for many years to come."
Bryan Ferro, Owner, Ferro Estate & Custom Jewelers
"Working on tight deadlines BANG newspapers get our recruiting message out to support the growth of our financial advisory firm. We find that people in Vermont avidly read their community newspaper!"
Dan Cunningham, founder, One Day In July
"Thank you for making our company's first experience advertising with the Burlington Area Newspaper Group (BANG) both positive and effortless. In a relatively short time we had a number of qualified applications and from that list who applied we were able to hire someone who we believe will be an ideal fit for our practice. We will definitely use BANG in the future for any positions that we might advertise for."
