Ameritech service helpscallers find businesses
YOUNGSTOWN -- SBC Ameritech says it is offering an easier way to locate phone numbers and addresses of businesses. The service, called Business Category Search, allows customers who call directory assistance through 411 to search for a business listing without having the exact name of the business.
For example, customers who ask for a grocery store in a community will be given the telephone number of one at random. If the caller knows a street, he will be given the closest possible match.
