Please Check Your Ad

We make every effort to avoid errors in advertisements. Each ad is carefully checked and proofread, but when thousands of ads are handled each day, mistakes do slip through. Therefore we ask that you check your ad , and if you find an error, report it to the Classified Department immediately by calling (919) 829-4600.
