Post Independent to move downtown

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – The office of the Glenwood Springs Post Independent will be moving to 824 Grand Ave. at the end of September, according to publisher Jenna Weatherred.

“We are thrilled to be moving downtown, to be in the middle of the action in Glenwood Springs,” Weatherred said. “We have signed a long-term lease, and we expect to be in this great downtown location for many years to come.”

The 824 Grand storefront space was occupied for many years by Top Drawer Office Supplies, and sits between Anderson’s Clothing and Glenwood Sewing Center.

Work has begun to remodel the downtown storefront to accommodate the newspaper’s staff of 14, and the move is expected to occur by Sept. 26.

The general phone number will remain the same, 945-8515, and staff members can be reached on the same direct telephone lines published every day in the masthead on page A2.

In July, the Post Independent’s parent company, Colorado Mountain News Media, sold the newspaper’s present building and property at 2014 Grand Ave. to FirstBank, which is expected to develop a new bank facility on the site.

FirstBank is making its debut in the Roaring Fork Valley with this purchase. It has dozens of branches along the Front Range, along with three in Summit County, eight in Eagle County and one in Grand Junction.

Staff for the classified advertising department have already moved out of the 2014 Grand building to the Colorado Mountain News Media printing and office facility in Gypsum.

Classified advertising salesman Dana Anderson remains in the Glenwood Springs office to help walk-in customers place classified ads and obituaries.

“After spending 30 years at 2014 Grand, we have a lot of memories associated with that building,” Weatherred said. “But before the previous owners of the Glenwood Post built there, the paper was located downtown. We think that’s the natural place for our office to be again.”

The newspaper is printed at the Colorado Mountain News Media printing plant in Gypsum and brought by truck to Garfield County news racks every morning.
