News Review is on the move

Local newspaper gets a new office across the street

Peninsula News Review Publisher Jim Parker

The Peninsula News Review is moving. But we’re not going far.

The office and staff of the Saanich Peninsula’s local community newspaper, serving the Peninsula for more than 100 years, is relocating from its current office on Second Street in Sidney to … Second Street in Sidney.

Right across the street, no less.

As of the week of August 25, the PNR will be operating out of its new digs at #103-9830 Second Street. It’s the north corner office in the Stone’s Throw building, right next to the Sidney Volunteer Fire Department’s back entrance. The space is well-suited to the PNR, highly-visible and continues to be accessible.

“We are looking forward to our move across the street in to our new premises,” says PNR Publisher Jim Parker. “We think it is important that we are based in the community we serve and our location is central to the Peninsula.

“As collectors of news and information, it is surprising what things we seem to have kept from previous moves, but it is nice to clean out the office and start fresh.”

The PNR hopes readers will pop in to check out the new digs and say hi to the staff.

Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Reach us with news tips or for advertising quotes by phone at 250-656-1151 and online at Watch for our new sign.
