Aimee's Success Story; advertising with the Union-Tribune

“Pleased with our results”

“We have been advertising in the Union-Tribune for years now and are so pleased with our results. Over the years we have tried many different forms of advertising for our business, but very few have brought us the results that the Union-Tribune has. Our account representative is always coming up with new ideas to reach a new audience with our message. She gives us such personal attention and is a pleasure to work with.
Thank you!”

— Aimee Hargrove, Marketing Executive, Leo Hamel Fine Jewelers

Irene's success story: advertising with the Union-Tribune

“We have seen a tremendous response.”

“As San Diego’s largest locally based financial institution, San Diego County Credit Union has been advertising in The San Diego Union-Tribune for years. The Union-Tribune reaches a broad range of individuals, helping us get our message out to our customers. We have seen a tremendous response to the great rates and promotions we advertise in the Union-Tribune. We have even had customers clip our U-T ads and bring them into our branches. We are pleased to continue our relationship, year after year. And we are very proud to be voted ‘Best Credit Union’ in the Union-Tribune’s ‘San Diego’s Best’ readers poll, eight years in a row.”

— Irene Oberbauer, President & CEO, San Diego County Credit Union

Jose's success story; advertising with the Union-Tribune

“I’ve had great results”

“I can definitely attest to the fact that U-T advertising works. As a restaurant owner I was looking for instant recognition from a wide customer base. Since running my advertisements in the Union-Tribune, I have had great results. We tried two other print methods and the results were futile as we felt it was money wasted with NO RETURN. I am very happy with the U-T advertising, plan to expand my advertising in the future and would recommend it to any business that is looking to expand their customer base. San Diego reads the Union-Tribune!”

—El Comal Restaurant, Owners, Jose Contreras, Luz & Noel Herrera (Not Pictured)

Kelli's success story; advertising with the Union-Tribune

“We see immediate results.”

“The Union-Tribune goes to the largest audience in the area, and we see immediate results. North Island Credit Union has auto loans, certificates, and premium money market specials that are very popular. But only if people know about them!
The Union-Tribune always gets the word out.”

—Kelli Beck, Vice President Marketing, North Island Credit Union

Lonestar BBQ's success story; advertising with the Union-Tribune

“We credit the Union-Tribune for this recent influx of hungry visitors; many of whom say that would never know we were here in Oceanside.”

“Since placing our ad in the Union-Tribune, we have had customers come in from all over North County to try our much-buzzed-about barbeque. We credit the Union-Tribune for this recent influx of hungry visitors; many of whom say that would never know we were here in Oceanside until they saw our ad in the newspaper.
Thanks Union-Trib! ”

—Richard Perez, Proprietor, Lone Star BBQ, Oceanside

Olga & Otto's success story; advertising with the Union-Tribune

“With each ad, we have found hundreds of new and old clients!”

”We have reopened our BBQ and catering business after a seven-year retirement, and have relied on the Union-Tribune to get the message out to all of our 50 years of past customers to let them know we are back. With each ad, we have found hundreds of new and old clients! This has consistently been the best source to keep our customers coming. It has enabled us to bring our restaurant volume to the same level as when we left — within two months! Thank you for 30 years of excellent service and results!”

—Olga and Oscar Worm, Owners, West Coast BBQ
