A new business directory for the City of University Place is being developed by TheSubTimes.com. The on-line newspaper has been selected by the Economic Development office of the City of University Place to produce the 2006-07 directory.
Ben Sclair, publisher of TheSubTimes.com, said the new directory will include all businesses (including home businesses) in the City of University Place and will be mailed free to homes in the community by the city’s economic development office.
Last year’s directory was a big hit with both businesses and residents of University Place because it provided a handy reference for buyers and sellers to gain information. The new directory will be expanded, according to Sclair, to provide additional opportunities for businesses to explain their products to everyone in the community.
TheSubTimes.com is the online newspaper for University Place, Lakewood, Steilacoom, DuPont and Fircrest. It has been online for nearly a year offering free subscriptions to everyone interested. News is strictly limited to residentis, businesses and activities in the five area communities. Readers are invited to submit articles about their organizations and stories about planned activities that will be of interest to residents of the five communities.
Sclair is co-publisher of General Aviation News, a nationally distributed newspaper for the general aviation community. His parents, Mary Lou & Dave Sclair, published The Suburban Times from 1975-1980 in Lakewood.
The City of University Place business directory will be a handy 5.5X7.5 inches with full color covers. All businesses will be included and a limited amount of advertising space will be available.
