A recent e-mail from the Coal Country Chamber of Commerce to its members may have added a little confusion regarding the BenGil Post and its business directory. The BenGil Post is a for-profit business. It’s owned by G-Pie Media, LLC, which is a subsidiary of Ageless, LLC. It does not own the South County News, nor do any of the owners of South County News have ownership in The BenGil Post. We are two separate entities that have partnered together to create a an all-in-one news source for the community.
Any business, whether they are part of the CCCC or not, can be in The BenGil Post’s business directory for free. The directory is a part of the BenGil Post, and is owned solely by the BenGil Post. Micky Robinson graciously took forms to local businesses of the CCCC to get their businesses located on the directory as quickly as possible. We work with the CCCC, just as we work with the MEDP, local businesses that are not part of the CCCC, and other private institutions.
Even though we are a for-profit business, our primary objective is to help repopulate the main streets of Gillespie and Benld, as well as keep the current businesses open and profitable.
