North Thompson Star/Journal moving one block east

Community newspaper in Barriere, B.C., making the move to new digs

During the month of May the North Thompson Star/Journal will be moving its offices one block east of its present location.

A welcome upgrade to our present facilities, the new second storey offices will be situated in the same building that currently houses Armour Mt. Bookkeeping and Art Gallery, Barriere and District Chamber of Commerce, Integrity Realty, and Yvonne’s Flowers, Gifts and Dollar Store.

“This is a great move for the Star/Journal,” said publisher Al Kirkwood, “These offices are open and bright, and most importantly we will be in a building with immediate highway access and visibility.”

Star/Journal staff say they are also looking forward to moving to the new building.  Over the next few weeks they will be sorting, packing, and moving decades of newspaper records, computer equipment and loaded filing cabinets to help make the move smoothly transitional.

“We’ll let all of our readers and clients know well in advance before we are open for business at the new building,” said Kirkwood, “This is a positive move for the future of the Star/Journal.”

The publisher also notes that the building currently rented by the Star/Journal on the corner of Lilley and Borthwick will  soon be placed up for sale.
