Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Bi-Lo steps into the world of e-coupons

      I receive a lot of press releases via email every day, and the vast majority have nothing to do with our area. However, one came through yesterday morning that caught my eye. It was from the public relations firm representing Bi-Lo.
      In a nutshell, beginning Wednesday, July 27, BI-LO will offer customers e-coupons. This new program will allow customers to load coupons directly onto their My BI-LO BONUSCARD for redemption in stores.
      In order to access the e-coupons, shoppers will have to log on to their "" account and click on Ways To Save, scroll down and click on the digital coupon button to browse the e-coupons. Shoppers can select the coupons of interest, which are automatically loaded on to their My BI-LO BONUSCARD. Coupons can be viewed and printed.
       "With everyone watching their wallets these days, I'm excited to be able to offer BI-LO customers another accessible way to keep more of their money in their pockets," said Kip Faulhaber, vice president of advertising, marketing and sales at BI-LO. "The new e-coupons program is easy to use and will save customers time with the discounted offers on everyday products."
      It all sounded pretty good to me and relatively easy, so I tried it out myself, and it is slick. You can create your own shopping list, load your coupons, and check on your Fuel Perks. It really is easy, just note, you will have to remember yet another user name and password.
      On a totally unrelated matter, I was quite distraught when I saw large machines tearing up the Georgia Southern tennis courts fronting Fair Road. I have always loved those courts, and when the courts at the Fair Road recreation department were filled, my friends and I would always "sneak" onto those, when the university wasn't using them.
      Upon inquiry, I have found out the following from Christian Flathman, director of marketing and communications for the university.
      "The tennis courts by Hanner Fieldhouse have experienced continual significant cracking to the court surfaces," Flathman said. "After attempts to correct the cracking by resurfacing the courts, a thorough study was conducted and discovered that the root cause of the issue was poor soil compaction at the time of original installation. Since the courts are used by academics, recreation and athletics it was deemed the appropriate time to re-construct them properly. Construction is expected to take approximately 90 days."
      I feel much better now, the courts will be back.

      So, until next Tuesday, I bid you au revoir.
