Pack your picnic for concert series

Grocery Bandit hosting this week's Prineville Perk


Work on the 2014-2015 Crook County Phonebook — covering Prineville, Powell Butte, Post, Paulina, and Mitchell — is getting under way at the Central Oregonian. Businesses who advertised in last year’s publication will soon be receiving their advertising breakdown packets of what they have done in the past. New businesses should have received their information packet by now, and if you did not, please contact the Central Oregonian and we will get that information to you.

There is a few changes for this year’s publication that will benefit your businesses marketing plan. This year, all ad placements of 1/8 page or larger will be in full color, and all ad placements of a ¼ page or larger will also receive a free banner ad in the white pages of the phonebook. However, banner ads will be limited to how many white pages are available for ad placement.

Just a reminder that we purchase our listings from CenturyLink. Every effort is made to ensure that the content of this publication are as accurate as possible. If your business operates without a landline and uses a cell listing, we will not receive that information from CenturyLink. You may, however, contact the Central Oregonian to see how you can include your business number in this year’s phonebook.
