MIXER ON THURSDAY, JULY 18th, 5:30 PM, AT AMERICA’S OFFICE SOURCE

A Mixer that’s a virtual Grand Opening for Chamber Members is happening this Thursday at Cell Phone Solution/America’s Office Source at 5:30 in their brand new store at 5014 Gulfport Blvd. in Gulfport. Christine and Tony know how to throw a party and are dying to show you their spacious new quarters accompanied by food and drink. Bring your business cards and brochures to share with your fellow members who are also investors in our community of Gulfport and South Pasadena. You will also learn about a local source of discount office supplies with overnight free delivery to the shop or to your door, a local source for many kinds of cell phones and accessories along with other interesting services.

Additional parking is available in the lot immediately behind the Chamber Office which is easily accessed from 49th or 50th Streets. The rear door of Cell Phone Solution will be open on Thursday evening for easy access to the party.
