PIQUA — The Piqua Daily Call offices are on the move.
Closed until Monday for the move to its new location, the Piqua Daily Call is relocating back to downtown, where it will be located at 101 E. High St., the former longtime location of Ernst Sporting Goods.
The move back to the downtown area is an exciting time for the newspaper’s staff, as they will be located back in the heart of the city, where businesses are located and news oftentimes begins, according to Editor Melody Vallieu.
“Transitioning back to the downtown is great for all of the employees, as well as our customers,” Vallieu said. “Staff will again be within walking distance of meetings, events and many of our advertising opportunities.”
Publisher Joshua Byers agrees.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled than to be rejoining the downtown Piqua business community,” Byers said. “This is the perfect location for Piqua’s hometown newspaper.”
Advertising manager Becky Smith said she already has heard that local businesses are welcoming the Piqua Daily Call back to downtown.
“One of the things I have heard when I have been out calling on clients in Piqua is that they are excited for us to be located right downtown with them again,” Smith said. “And we couldn’t be more excited to join them as well.”
Hours at the new location will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Friday. The new downtown office will offer advertising, newsroom, circulation and classified services.
