Yellow® helps Cantabrians get back on their feet

In order to help Cantabrians get back on their feet following the
Christchurch earthquake, Yellow® is asking businesses to update their
details or add a new standard business listing if they don’t already have
one, that will then be included in a new, free of charge, special edition of
the Christchurch Yellow® pages.

“Many businesses have had to relocate either temporarily or permanently,
and some have even had to close their doors. Yellow® wants to help
Christchurch businesses let their customers know that they are open for
business and where they can be found - and we’ll be doing that across our
entire Yellow® network of products – print, online, mobile and 018”, says
Kellie Nathan, Marketing Director for Yellow®.

“We’re helping people to get their businesses back in business”, she says.
“Yellow® is the leading business and residential information provider and
is in a unique position to provide the Christchurch community with the
most up to date information on local businesses in order to help them get
back on their feet after the earthquake.”

Advertisers can update their details online at or
contact the Yellow® Customer Assist Team on 0800 803 803, or
alternatively speak directly to their Yellow® Sales Representative.
The book will include a section with the latest information on business
support networks for Christchurch residents including: Christchurch City
Council, Chamber of Commerce, Civil Defence, Emergency Services,
Salvation Army, Red Cross and SPCA, all of which have been instrumental
in helping Cantabrians through this difficult time.

The special edition Christchurch book closes April 28, so businesses are
asked to update their business details or add a new free standard
business listing prior to this.

The books will be distributed from late May and will be in the market until
November, at which time the next main Christchurch Yellow pages®
books will be delivered.
