In our advertisers’ words:

“Because of our working with Current in Carmel during CarmelFest 2011, we can attribute a substantial increase, about 40 percent, in attendance during the festival, and our parade attendance was up by an estimated 30 percent.” – Gary Frey, CarmelFest chairman

“By advertising in Current, I have gained brand recognition in an industry that offers several different products. It’s well worth the investment. It gets me opportunities to talk to people I otherwise ordinarily wouldn’t get.” – Scott M. Wharton, owner, Wharton Insurance & Financial Services, Inc.

“I don’t need to advertise anywhere else. Current in Carmel is building my Carmel practice all by itself.” – Dr. John Lowe, D.D.S., Contemporary Dental Concepts

“To my knowledge, Miracle Restaurant Group’s Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant in Carmel set an opening-week record for sales for stores in what we call new markets. … Current in Carmel is, of course, among the top on our list of entities that made it happen.” – Carl Whitmire, marketing director, Miracle Restaurant Group
