New For 2014:

Member- To- Member

Savings Program!

 

We're excited to announce the launch of a new program this year that's exclusive for

our members! The program will advertise your business to fellow members to get them

in your door AND will save you

$$ when patronizing fellow members a definite win-win!

 

The details are simple...

 

Send us an email outlining what you would like to offer (examples: a specific

percentage discount such as 10% off all services, a discounted flat fee for a specific

service, buy one get one free/half off, etc.). The offer has to have a real special value

for the members in other words, if you offer everyone a free evaluation of some kind, it

isn't exclusive for our members. We understand that some of our members will be

unable to offer a discount because of the nature of their business.

But all of our members will be able to take advantage of the discounts offered.

 

Your questions answered...

 

Can I change what I offer?

Yes you can, but for the sanity of our web developer, we'd prefer that the offer

be for a full year. For greater flexibility you can offer something like..."10% off

all services, ask about even greater seasonal discounts."

 

Sounds good, but how can I verify that someone is a member?

They'll have a membership card (see sample below). Membership cards

have been mailed to all members who are current in their dues.

All our members are listed alphabetically on our website.

I'd like to shop with fellow members, but how will I know what the offers are?

All offers will be listed on our website under the heading Member To Member Savings.

Business of the Month Joe’s Service Center

Business of the Month

Joe’s Service Center
584 Mantoloking Road in Brick

We love the story of a small business that grew because of the hard work of the owners who are invested in their community. The following spotlight is on a family owned and operated business that is exactly that.
 
Joe’s Service Center has been taking care of the automotive needs of Ocean County residents since 1958. Joe Bevacqua originally opened as Breton Woods Gulf, later became a Mobil dealer and then in 1986 changed to their current name.  For many years he worked seven days a week to build a business that is now owned and operated by partners Jeff, Lisa and Billy. 
 
Joe’s son, Jeff grew up in the business and began running it 23 years ago. As a teenager, he pumped gas, cleaned the station and the mechanic’s tools, took out the garbage and basically learned the business from the bottom up.  His partner (and brother-in-law) Billy began working there when he was 16 and has been there ever since. Lisa (Bevacqua) Wheeler does “behind the scenes” work to keep the office running smoothly.
 
The full service station, in addition to selling gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel and propane, prides itself on mechanics who repair all makes and models of cars and light trucks.  They do everything from oil changes to major engine work and also offer towing and tire sales.  
 
Jeff says that they have “built their business on honesty and always being as fair as we can be.”  And since they’ve been helping neighbors for 56 years that seems like a very sound philosophy!
