To Whom It May Concern:
James River Press is one of the charter members of James River
Trade Exchange, joining in October 2003. Since that date,
we have been able to improve our business from both a sales
and spending perspective through our relationship with JRTE
and its exchange members.
From a sales perspective, James River Trade Exchange has
given us the opportunity to earn thousands of dollars of additional
income that may not have been generated otherwise. By printing
various materials for James River Trade members, we have been
able to build a trade credit that we use as a supplemental
purchasing power to cash.
This additional purchasing power has allowed James River
Press to obtain services including vehicle repair, landscaping,
cleaning services, and telephone system installation and repair.
These expenditures would have required a sizable cash investment
that we have been able to put to other uses.
We have freed up thousands of dollars by adding a trade component
to our budget, which has allowed James River Press to function
more efficiently. I recommend James River Trade Exchange to
any business owner that is looking for a creative way to save
money and increase their sales.
