Heather McGregorPost Independent EditorGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

The Glenwood Springs Post Independent building at 2014 Grand Ave. in Glenwood Springs is for sale. The newspaper business itself is not for sale.Once the building is sold, the Post Independent staff will move to another commercial location within Glenwood Springs, said Post Independent publisher Jenna Weatherred.”We’re not going away. We just want to be in a building that suits our needs better,” Weatherred said. “We don’t print newspapers here anymore, our staff is smaller, and we would like to be closer to downtown.”When the 14,000-square-foot building was built in the early 1980s to house what was the Glenwood Post, it included space for news, advertising and circulation staff. A large warehouse space at the back of the building housed the paper’s printing press and was used to store huge rolls of newsprint.The Post Independent is now printed at the company’s plant in Gypsum. The old press was moved in 2002 to the Greeley Tribune. Part of the warehouse space was remodeled to accommodate a call center, which handles classified advertising for Colorado Mountain News Media.The building sits on a large, flat lot of one and a quarter acres. The building and lot are listed with real estate broker Sean de Moraes at Morris & Fyrwald for a price of $1.55 million.
