My TOPS membership increased by 350% in May 2018 as compared to May 2017 when I did not advertise. It also increased in April and June 2018 as compared to 2017. Your ads really do work. Also when I was first retired I started a cleaning business. I advertised my cleaning services in your Pennysaver and it only took a few weeks for my schedule to fill up. Three years later I still have those customers who contacted me through the Pennysaver. Thank you for providing a wonderful service to the community. Paula Clark
Hi Pennysaver!I wanted to send a quick email to thank you for publishing the Pennysaver! My husband sent in a Give & Take ad a while back in search of broken sewing machines to fix, tune up, and donate to local nonprofits. The response was overwhelming, and although we had lots of machines ready for new homes, the two nonprofits we talked with couldn't take them all. That's when we noticed a note about the nonprofit, Mary's Place, on the Hometown Events page. Mary's Place works with refugees and was really happy to get the machines. The Executive Director let us know that several people have already brought in some of the clothes they've made.We just wanted to let you know, and to say thank you! I grew up in Penfield and always loved getting the Pennysaver when I was a kid. I moved back to Fairport after almost 20 years away and was so excited to see it was still around. Thanks so much for keeping it going. We love it!Have a great rest of the week,Nonna and Doug
“Most of my business on Friday was from customers wearing plaid. It was almost as busy as Small Business Saturday, so it was very successful. The customers had fun with it, some had scarves, some shirts and one even had plaid socks.”
“I was actually shocked, amazed at the turn out. Our Plaid Friday went very well. Almost a record day for us.”
“We had a great turnout for Plaid Friday! The concept brought at least 30 customers into my business wearing their plaid. It was wonderful to see Plaid Friday sparking a flame to the old Black Friday tradition, and people were very excited to get their earned free candle by wearing their plaid. It was a fun and unique concept and I look forward to next year!”

We have a great relationship with our Salesperson, Jennifer Howe. She is on-top of our weekly advertising. The Dansville calendar for the 2nd year is an awesome addition to our advertising. The office also purchases pens that our patients love!!! Thanks for the knowledge of your products and great recommendations.
I always get good results and feedback from customers when I advertise with the Genesee Valley Penny Saver.
My rep has always been a pleasure to work with ñ there when I need her, but not pushy! Always professional and pleasant!
We would like to thank the Genesee Valley Penny Saver for providing such a quality product to get our message out with. For the past couple of years we have been running an ad campaign featuring Maryann Zartman, our senior staff member. It has been met with great success.
The Genesee Valley Penny Saver works well because of the many areas that they cover. I get good feedback from customers about the ads that I run.
They are easy to work with!
Some are skeptical about print products because " No one reads the paper or weekly shoppers anymore."
Not true! Thousands do each week and they are customers and new consumers that all businesses need.
My father is 84. No cell phone, no computer. He pays cash for everything and is still†a very strong consumer. He uses the phone book, local newspapers and the Genesee Valley Penny Saver religiously.
We live in a time when local print papers are fewer and fewer. We all like a sense of community and†local news so weekly shoppers like the Penny Saver have tremendous value.
Thanks for your good service and for assisting me and partnering with me to solicit tenants in my real estate business.
Thank you for the terrific service you and your team offer through the Penny Saver. I have used your ad service several times in the last few years and have always found the right person and the right service!
Your little paper, maybe it’s not so little, does a super job for us. When we do an auction in Batavia, we really don’t need to use another paper. I do a survey to see where people find out about us and most everyone says your penny saver. I don’t know why we even bother with the other papers. The Penny Saver really pulls in a great deal of customers for us. In all the areas we advertise, no other paper offers these same results.”

My advertising dollars spent with the GVPS have been some of the best money I've ever spent. I picked up a ton of new customers that have been great and have passed my name on to their friends and family. We have grown as a company and to date this year we have spent no advertising dollars and the phone keeps ringing. So, basically, you guys did too well, and we just couldn't advertise and deliver the quality service that we do. If we need to advertise, you will be my first avenue.
