SPONSORED: Take the worry out of gentrification – with GENTRÍFIA®
Gentrification is TERRIFIC with GENTRÍFIA®!
“I used to worry about gentrification squeezing out local businesses,” says Monica Galvanes of Eagle Rock, a Los Angeles neighborhood in transition. “And then I heard about GENTRÍFIA®. Now I don’t give a shit!”
Her reaction explains the great success of GENTRÍFIA®, according to its manufacturer, STFU PHARMA.
Carlos Robles up in the East Bay is also enthusiastic:
I used to be like “¡Que lastima! They’re tearing down an entire block of garden apartments for some kinda shiny mixed-use development where no one I know will be able to afford the rent.” Until I started on GENTRÍFIA®, that is. Now I’m all like, “Guatafac, who cares? I may get new neighbors who will disrespect me, but they’re neighbors with money!”
And I LOVE $9 tacos!
Ask your physician if GENTRÍFIA® is right for you.
