Peoples Gas Offers New Energy Solution: Hot Coffee
How do you like your coffee? Cream? Sugar? A free gas tip? Chicagoans passing through Daley Plaza today got the full service compliments of Peoples Gas. This early morning promotion not only opened eyes with a free cup of Joe, but also served up a helpful reminder to visit peoplesgasdelivery.com for money saving tips on natural gas consumption. The green-minded java jackets have been distributed to independent coffee shops throughout the city. It’s all part of Tom, Dick & Harry’s new multi-media campaign for Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas.
