This family owned newspaper is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history! Only for sale due to the current owner’s ill health, the business has gone from strength to strength in the past 100 years. In 2010 net profits were closer to $145,000 and while the current owner’s recent stroke has certainly led to a slight downturn in revenues, a new owner/publisher can definitely build on the strong foundation and solid business history of this iconic publication. In the broker’s opinion this is an exciting industry opportunity for either an individual buyer or a publishing company wishing to expand by acquisition.
