Do you like receiving coupons and discount offers to local businesses? If you weren’t familiar with these businesses or not already using them, would a coupon or discount entice you to visit? If you live in the city of Madera, Madera County or the Chowchilla area, there is coupon magazine mailed out in the winter, spring, summer and fall of each year that features coupons and special offers for businesses in your area. It is called the Madera Values Quarterly.
After many years of planning and testing, the top mail carrier routes of Madera CA were identified and more than 27,000 homes along these routes receive copies of the magazine. Additionally, another 2,000 copies can be found in businesses in the same area. Therefore, if you don’t receive one of the mailouts, it’s likely you can still get one by visiting a participating business.
The magazine was created almost a decade ago, and many of the business owners who participate have been using it since its creation or shortly after. A professional graphic artist designs the magazine, which is in full color. The cost for businesses to place a coupon or special offer in the magazine is not much, with most of them making up for it in the business that the magazine brings in. Most of the businesses featured are small and independently owned. Local businesses who participate in the magazine include: Banquet Hall and Mary’s Garden, Bloom Garden Supply and Hydroponics, Country Club Smog Check, D.R. Drilling, G. Belle Leather Works and La Casa de Ceramica.
