Townsville Yellow Pages Issue Date For 2012 is ”April 12th”.
That is when I understand they will begin delivering here in Townsville.
To find this out I had to call their 132378 number – as it was not clear on the webpage. It was interesting listening to the messages that preceded me talking to my “Customer Care Associate in Melbourne (not overseas?) “. It seems that all the cover letters sent out with Proofs for Adelaide and Melbourne were incorrect – but the proofs were correct. I guess there must have been enough confused/annoyed business owners calling them to warrant a message.
