On The Clayton Tribune’s list of 2020 resolutions is to find a new downtown location for its office.
“When we constructed our current building in 2003, we added a second floor with office space and an apartment,” said publisher Wayne Knuckles. “Today, our space is almost three times larger than we need. For efficiency, we are going to sell our 120 North Main Street building and relocate.”
The sale of the building will not have an impact on the The Clayton Tribune’s day-to-day operations, which will continue as normal during and after the move, Knuckles said.
“We will be publishing The Clayton Tribune each Thursday, just as we always have,” Knuckles said. “The move won’t mean any change to our weekly printing schedule.”
The newspaper will continue publishing from a new local office in the near future that better meets the needs of its staff in producing each weekly edition.
“We remain committed to serving the citizens of Rabun County with news and information, just as we have been doing since 1897,” Knuckles said. “The Clayton Tribune traces its roots back to J.A. Reynolds, who used a team of mules to haul a hand-cranked printing press to Clayton from Habersham County to establish a newspaper that would serve all the citizens of this community. More than a century later, we are committed to continuing the vision Mr. Reynolds began.”
Poss Realty of Clayton will handle the sale of The Tribune building.
