THE OLD MILL CAF00: 324 Birch Street, Westwood, CA * 256-3180 When we started serving dinners on Saturday night at the beginning of February, we advertised in many ways: in house, word of mouth, and we requested a blurb in the business section of the paper. After speaking with our Advertising Representative, Valorie Chisholm, about the possibilities of advertising, we decided to run our weekly dinner specials in the Westwood Pine Press and The Chester Progressive newspapers. This advertisement included our new Saturday dinner specials, but did not overtly mention the addition. I know the advertisement works because of comments made by both regular and new customers alike. People I've known for years learned about our new Saturday dinners from the ad, and even customers that frequent the restaurant mentioned seeing the ads and deciding to come in for dinner. We'll continue to use ads in the paper because they work. Sincerely, THE OLD MILL CAFE Jason Theobald, Co-Owner A $.. .. ,,.a x./t ,a.."
