EDITORIAL: Saanich News comes home

Saanich News moves into new office at 104B - 3550 Saanich Rd. in Saanich Plaza

It’s been a long time coming, but the Saanich News is back home.

On Monday, our editorial, sales and creative staff parted ways from our colleagues at the Black Press office on Broughton Street in downtown Victoria and set up shop at 104B – 3550 Saanich Rd., just behind Save-on-Foods in Munro Centre.

The reason for the move is obvious: it makes sense to be back in the community we serve, accessible and present, so that both our readers and advertisers understand that our commitment to the community isn’t just lip service.

We’re still working out the kinks, but feel free to drop by if you’re interested in sharing a story idea, chatting with one of our advertising consultants or just picking up a copy of Saanich News or our other publications like Monday Magazine, Boulevard Magazine and Real Estate Victoria.

We’re in this Saanich news business for the long run, and we hope you’re there with us. Stop by anytime. We’re open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
