Local directory connecting consumers and businesses for two decades
Access Publishing completed distribution of its local business directory this month to the 82,207 residents and businesses of Paso Robles, Atascadero, Templeton and surrounding areas. North County Access is a leading source of local business information to help consumers make buying decisions. In addition to the print edition that is delivered every year, the website northcountyaccess.com gets thousands of hits every month and is a top internet directory for locals.
This year marks the 21st anniversary of the first North County Access printed in 1993. “I would like to thank all the advertisers who made this year’s publication a success,” said Scott Brennan, CEO of Access Publishing. “It’s the directory locals have used to find goods and services for 20 years and running. I would also like to thank our printer, Casey Printing, and everyone on our hardworking team who helped with the project,” Brennan said.
Advertisers get results. ” We get more results from Access than any other advertising we do,” said Toni Elhajnasr, owner of Pizza Express in Paso Robles. “I always get a lot of coupons back from the Access yellow pages,” she said.
“If you’re in business around here, be sure to check out your free listing in the book and online at northcountyaccess.com,” Brennan says. Businesses can add new listings, photos and additional information for free. Residents who prefer online directories can opt-out of home delivery at yellowpagesoptout.com.
