Ads At VHS Gym? Don’t Believe It


Share post:

On Wednesday, at least one Verona business got a call from a company asking it to advertise on the walls of the Verona High School gyms. Given the prevalence of advertising at professional sports venues these days, it was a sales pitch that sounded plausible.

But the Verona school district does not have a contract with C&S Marketing, the company that made the pitch, and does not permit advertising by businesses in the schools or in materials sent home to school parents.

C&S Marketing appears to be based in the Dallas area. When this reporter called the C&S employee who made the pitch to the Verona business, the woman quickly excused herself from the call and said a company representative would call me back. My call has not been returned.

If you receive a suspicious call at your home or business, you can alert the Verona Police Department.  Use the non-emergency number, which is 973-239-5000.
