Aberdeen Journals has opened a new shop as part of the company’s move back into the city centre.
Earlier this month, staff at the Press and Journal and Evening Express moved into Marischal Square on Broad Street – a stone’s throw from where the papers were printed from 1894 until the early 1970s.
Now a shop, called The Journals, has opened on the neighbouring Upperkirkgate.
As well as picking up a copy of our titles, customers can place classified ads and family announcements, book holidays through our travel service or order copies of photographs which have previously appeared in print.
Customers can also sign up for home delivery, subscribe to any DC Thomson Media publications and even buy related merchandise for their favourite titles.
Customer service assistant Rona Rodriguez said: “I worked in the old shop on Union Street and people are delighted that we are back in the town.
“I think the shop will be very successful.”
Her colleague Liesa Black said: “The move has been really good and I can’t fault it.
“The shop’s been getting busier and busier every day, we’re in a great location.”
Since the start of August, more than 200 members of staff covering the editorial, digital, advertising, marketing and commercial strands of the papers have relocated from Lang Stracht to the £107million Marischal Square development.
Mike Watson, DC Thomson Media chief executive, said: “We’re thrilled to be moving the Aberdeen team into state-of-the-art office space in the heart of the city.
“This move will provide the teams with a brilliant environment to work in, just a stone’s throw from the old Aberdeen Journals office on Broad Street.
“Our investment in this space cements our commitment to Aberdeen and the papers that serve the city.”
Staff at The Journals are on hand to help with all inquiries between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 12pm on Saturdays.
