AST, part Ten million dollars worth of groceries will keep the cash registers ringing in five large-size Alberta supermarkets, twelve months a year. That makes five Alberta supermarket managers and all their employees very happy. And last year our 6700 employees did just that. They did more for Alberta than just buy gro- ceries, though. Because last year their pay- checks totalled over 46 million dollars. And this money was spent in many ways. AGT paople bought over 650 new cars, and spent over seven and a half million dollars on new homes and apartments. Plus about two million dollars to keep those same homes and apart- ments furnished. What does it all mean to you? Just this. Every time you spend even a dime with AGT, someone else benefits. Because when our employees spend money in Alberta, other Albertans are on the receiving end. And that helps keep Alberta's economy rolling ahead. AT AGT YOUR DIMES DO BUY MORE THAN CONVERSATION AGTT ALBERTA GOVERNMENT TELEPHONES ;
