November Corpus Christi Business News has the scoop
The November Corpus Christi Business News is in the mail and on newsstands. The monthly economic newspaper celebrates business owners and community events while keeping up with the latest news that affects the area’s economy. It is mailed free to 10,000 businesses in Corpus Christi. Another 2,000 are distributed — also free — via racks around town.
This month, the front page includes stories on:
• Cheniere Energy and the importance of LNG to the port and the local economy;
• a conversation with Port Aransas Mayor Charles Bujan about the status of his town’s recovery from Hurricane Harvey;
• a new professional sports team coming to Corpus Christi;
• and the seven constitutional amendments on the Nov. 7 ballot.
Turn the page for news on why newcomers to Corpus Christi still demand — and use — phone books.
