Moose Jaw Ex­press: Ten Years Serv­ing the Com­mu­nity

Moose Jaw - - 2018 Year In Review -

2018 marked ten years the Moose Jaw Ex­press has been pub­lished in the Friendly City, ini­tially as the Moose Jaw Value Ex­press. The pa­per ini­tially started out as a small ad­ver­tis­ing edi­tion with very lit­tle lo­cal con­tent but two years later, notic­ing the need for a com­mu­nity news­pa­per to meet the needs of lo­cal and re­gional busi­ness ad­ver­tis­ing, as well as first-hand writ­ten ar­ti­cles about the peo­ple and events go­ing on in the City of Moose Jaw, the Moose Jaw Ex­press was born.

2018 was a year with cer­tain set­backs but un­prece­dented growth for the Ex­press.

In the wee hours of the morn­ing of Jan­uary 11th, 2018, the Moose Jaw Ex­press of­fice at 32 Man­i­toba Street ex­pe­ri­enced a fire and burnt. The only things sal­vage­able were the com­puter hard­drives. With­out miss­ing a beat, the Ex­press re­lo­cated to the va­cant old Times Her­ald build­ing on Fair­ford Street and within three work days pub­lished their weekly pa­per.

In Septem­ber, the Ex­press moved back into 32 Man­i­toba Street to con­tinue serv­ing the com­mu­nity in numer­ous ca­pac­i­ties, in­clud­ing Moose Jaw’s only hard copy news­pa­per, print and pro­mo­tional prod­ucts, signs and much more.

Good things are hap­pen­ing; Keep your eyes open for more as Moose Jaw Ex­press con­tin­ues to ex­pand.
