A highly successful model for classified ads using a voluntary email subscriber list has been popular on Salt Spring Island since last February.  Users find they get quick responses to services, items posted for sale, available for free, or requests to find that sought after blender, lawnmower or record player.  And subscribers have found it to be a lot of fun.  Over 1500 people are now signed up and the numbers keep growing.  Everyday, new things crop up and efficient transactions made.

Because of the big success of the Salt Spring group, we have started a similar free, voluntarily moderated service for us Pender Islanders.  It may take a little while to get going, but as more people catch on and join the email group, then who knows!

Share the PIE!

Simply join the PIE (Pender Islands Email) free classifieds and messaging group by emailing alphapest@shaw.ca to join, then send your messages to the entire group (now over 60 members) using pender-island@googlegroups.com as the ‘send to’ email address.  You can then send out whatever you want as long as it’s of relevance to the Pender community.  As a member, you could also just sit back and see what others have to offer or need.  Group members may unsubscribe at any time.
