Signing Off

This is the final issue of Golden Business News. My first post was delivered on May 1, 2011, and covered Chelsea of London–a lingerie store, now long gone. I’ve since written 2,953 promotions for Golden businesses–never missed a day, in 8 years and 1 month. It’s been a blast!

Thanks to all the Golden merchants who have kept me informed, thanks to the City government for sponsoring the program for so long, and thanks to you, my readers.

Remember–I’ll continue to send What’s Happening in Golden? every morning at 3AM and News About Golden every afternoon at 3PM. If you don’t currently get those–subscribe now!
