Congrats to the Macungie volunteers for their hard work on this project. The purpose of Business Directory's, of course, is to promote businesses however possible. I think that this is something that revitalization programs are going to have to focus on more and more, particularly as the economy gets tougher. For more information, see below:

(November 13) Macungie, PA – Mike Schlossberg, coordinator for the Macungie Business Revitalization Program, announced today that the Macungie Business Directory has been completed and is now available.
The Directory contains a variety of information over eighty businesses, including contact information, hours of operation, a description of services and coupons to selected businesses.
“Our efforts are designed to improve businesses in Macungie,” said Schlossberg. “With this guide, we will hopefully increase awareness of the diversity of businesses in the Borough and encourage residents to shop here.” Schlossberg also noted that similar projects in other local Boroughs, such as Hellertown and Emmaus, have resulted in an increase in customers to local businesses.
The guide is available at Macungie Borough Hall, the Macungie Institute and at the Borough of Macungie’s website (http://www.macungie.pa.us). It can also be obtained by contacting Mike Schlossberg at 484-809-1796 or MikeS@lehighvalleychamber.org.
