AT&T OFFERS OPTION TO HOLIDAY SHOPPING RUSH
AT&T OFFERS OPTION TO HOLIDAY SHOPPING RUSH CHICAGO, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Halloween is over but now a truly
frightening season is upon us -- the holiday shopping season. Believe it or not, Christmas is just weeks away and the malls will be packed with shoppers.
But there is an easier way. This year, more companies than ever across the country are offering shoppers toll-free 800 numbers. Those numbers make it easy to shop from the convenience of your home, office or car phone! In the 1990s, toll-free calling has come of age. Since they were first offered by AT&T in 1967, toll-free 800 numbers have skyrocketed. Now, more than 300,000 businesses use almost 700,000 AT&T 800 numbers. In 1990, 9.6 billion calls were made to toll-free AT&T 800 numbers. A new record for toll-free calls is expected to be set this year. To make it easy to find companies with toll-free 800 numbers, AT&T (NYSE: T) publishes special telephone directories -- one for consumers and one for businesses. In them, you will find companies offering an incredible range of gift ideas such as a full set of Elvis coffee mugs or a complete beekeeper's do-it-yourself kit! If you're bored with the traditional holiday meal fare -- turkey, ham, etc., how about ordering a clambake, sent overnight from Cape Cod? Not only do the AT&T Toll-Free 800 directories make shopping easier, they are also great year-round reference guides for free calls for information on just about everything. As you would imagine, the AT&T Toll-Free 800 Directories are available from a toll-free number. Call 1-800-426-8686 to inquire how you can obtain your own copy of the consumer or business toll-free directories. -0- 11/6/91 /CONTACT: Tom Hopkins of AT&T, 312-230-4889/ (T) CO: AT&T ST: Illinois IN: TLS SU: PDT FC -- NY103 -- 1955 11/06/91 17:55 EST
