There has been confusion regarding USA. Cleaners with two locations, one inside Mega and the other at Salida de Celaya #14. Seems one employee and had been mistakenly offering the wrong discount to members. Your Club's arrangement with USA Dry Cleaning is 15% discount on all dry cleaning minimum 100 pesos. No anticipation needed. Thanks to a member bringing the misunderstanding to our attention we were able to straighten out the Club's relationship with USA. It's another reason member feedback is very very important. Your Club provides members two, trusty dry cleaners: USA and Max's which is also located on the Salida at #85. Both are good. Employ the one you desire most. See "other VIP Club discounts" to find out more.

In our last flash, we wrongly indicated that Gary Peterson was presently spearheading long-time, respected, San Miguel charity "Feed the Hungry."

Proper praise to both!
