This is your opportunity to own a business that is:

Turn-Key. Home Based. Significant to the community for twenty years. Able to grow and evolve. PROFITABLE. 

 

You have the opportunity to become the next chapter in a business that has been an integral part of the local community for twenty years. You are buying a turn-key operation that will allow you to work from home, creating opportunities bound only by your personal vision. You are buying a family business built on pride, hard work and character. 

 

This local community-based newspaper has a strong history of providing value to advertisers and readers alike, and of turning a profit! Everything you need to continue this tradition and income is in place. Contacts with printers, advertisers, and initial start-up help from the current owners will provide you with a solid base upon which you will begin making this business your own. That said, knowledge of page design and the ability to make sales will further ensure your success. 

 

It is rare to find a business that is at the same time tangible and free of 'bricks and mortar' expenses. This is your opportunity to own and operate a business that fits both these attractive elements. As this is a home-based business, you are not tied to costly leases and other overhead costs associated with most businesses. Most importantly, this means that the operation is easily scalable to new territories. 

 

The history of this business is already in print, and its future will be written by you.
