Chronicle office moving this weekend

This weekend, the Chronicle is moving from First Avenue to the Ladysmith Press building at 940 Oyster Bay Dr.

We are pleased to announce that the Ladysmith-Chemainus Chronicle will be moving this weekend from our leased premises on First Avenue to our “new-in-2007” 20,000-square-foot press building that Black Press owns on Oyster Bay Drive near Home Hardware.

Black Press is one of the largest employers in Ladysmith, and all of the company’s publications north of Duncan are printed in Ladysmith, as well as other print publications.

The Chronicle’s first day at the Ladysmith Press is Mon., Oct. 29.

“We will miss being on First Avenue, but it makes a lot of sense for us to be at the Ladysmith Press, as we own that building and lease on First Avenue,” says Chronicle publisher Teresa McKinley. “We also spend a lot of time driving back and forth to the press building right now.”

Although the office will be in a new location, it is business as usual for the Chronicle. Readers are still welcome to pick up their newspaper at the Oyster Bay Drive location, and Chronicle staff hope people will drop by and visit them in their new office.

The Chronicle’s new street address will be 940 Oyster Bay Dr., and the new fax number will be 250-245-2230. The telephone number (250-245-2277), e-mail addresses and mailing address (P.O. Box 400, Ladysmith, B.C., V9G 1A3) remain the same.

The 1,687-square-foot office space on the corner of First and Roberts is for rent and would be an ideal location for retail or office, as it is a highly visible corner.
