VIP Club Member Christine Conway, owner of the beauty shop, The Cutting Garden, Codo #4, 154-9130, wants to thank all those VIP Club members who wished her well during her recovery from a broken shoulder. On Thursdays only, from now until the end of February, go get a new hair do or other beauty parlor service and Christine will give card carrying VIP Club members 20% off her regular rates.

Due to the wild fluctuation of the peso verses the dollar, Intercam Casa de Cambio has been forced to temporarily suspend their special exchange rates they've extended to VIP Club members for the past four years when cashing dollars or buying them. Director Ricardo Gonzalez said in a meeting that with the wild fluctuation he can't always be sure if is firm is making or losing money when cashing dollars on a day to day basis. He asks the membership not to give up on the extra spiff and is certain, once markets calm and stabilize he will again offer VIP Club members a premium on their exchanges. (The Club wishes to thank Intercam for their generosity!)

Tecolote Bookstore, on Jesus, is singing a similar tune. They are trying to hold their prices in pesos yet they pay dollars for their books. Tecolote will need to suspend their special relationship with the VIP Club until markets stabilize. (Your Club wants to thank fellow VIP Club member, Mary Marsh, owner of Tecolote, for her generosity.)

We may as well let all the poisons flow, lol. Your Club had a chat with Chelo, at her pharmacy on Canal. Chelo offers 20% discount off pharmaceuticals and 15% off retail products to VIP Club members. Chelo says though, there are some, she says "some," a few drugs that there is no room in at all to discount. Yet she wants all members to know she welcomes the card and your business.
