The 2010 Thompson-Okanagan BBB Consumer Guide
July 15, 2010

Looking for a business you can trust? Better Business Bureau serving Mainland BC is pleased to announce the release of the 2010 Thompson-Okanagan BBB Consumer Guide.

The Consumer Guide gives consumers looking for a particular company, shopping for a product, or browsing for a service, a handy reference guide listing all BBB Accredited Businesses in their communities.

“Whether you are looking for a roofer, mover, or a general contractor, the BBB Consumer Guide offers consumers a quick and easy way to check out a business,” says Lynda Pasacreta, BBB President and CEO. “The past year we saw a spike in businesses using the BBB name and logo without our authorization. Use the Consumer Guide to verify that businesses are legitimate members of the BBB.”

The Consumer Guide will come out July 18 in Vernon and Kelowna and on July 21 in Penticton and Kamloops. The following newspapers will have copies of the Consumer Guide inserted on the days mentioned above:

· Capital News Kelowna

· Morning Star Vernon

· Westerner Penticton

· Kamloops This Week

Copies of the Guide will also be available at community recreation centres in Vernon, Kelowna, Kamloops, Penticton, and Salmon Arm later next week.

If you don’t find one at your door, or community centre you can receive them by sending a 10” x 13” self addressed, postage paid envelope, to the BBB office in Vancouver.
