Rival Phone Book Boasts Bigger Type

Brandon Sun, October 21, 1995        

Since deregulation, Manitoba Telephone System has faced competition from all sides in the battle for long distance service.   Now it will face competition for its Brandon Telephone Directory.

Brandon entrepreneur Sue Palmer recently told the Sun that she has joined forces with Infotel to produce a Brandon area telephone book.   She feels the larger type will be more attractive to users and advertisers.   She also said that, besides listing the address of each customer, the postal code will be listed, making the directory more user friendly.

Infotel is based in Vernon, B.C. with franchises throughout British Columbia and Alberta.

Palmer said sales for the new directory will close in February, and that it should be published in April.   Two per cent of all sales will be donated to the Sun Fund for Kids.  “It’s just our way of showing commitment to the community,” Palmer said.
