THE Examiner is on the move ... and back in Huddersfield town centre from Monday.
We will have a new public office at 56 John William Street opposite St George’s Square which will be open every weekday from 9am to 5pm.
There will also be a ‘hotline’ there so people can talk direct to our editorial and advertising teams who have moved to a new base on Bradley Business Park.
Our town centre office will continue to deal with customer inquiries, sell Examiner Travel holidays and photographs and adverts along with Examiner merchandise.
The former Examiner headquarters on Queen Street South has been sold to the University of Huddersfield and major work is now going on to get it ready for the start of the autumn term in September.
Examiner Head of Content Andrew Hirst said: “All our phone numbers and email addresses will stay the same so it will be a smooth transition to our two new buildings.
“We know people will be pleased to see an Examiner presence inside Huddersfield ring road again and the office on John William Street will provide that.
“It is on the free town centre bus route and not far from the railway station and the bus station.
“People can just pop in to get all the usual Examiner services – and they can also speak to reporters and advertising staff direct on a phone that is in there.”
These staff are in a building on Bradley Business Park on Bradley Road, Bradley.
The address is Pennine Business Park, Longbow Close, Bradley Road, Huddersfield, HD2 1GQ.
All mail should be sent to this address.
Examiner staff moved into its purpose-built headquarters on Queen Street South in October 1990.
The move there brought an era to an end as the paper had been based for 120 years in Ramsden Street – and the giant printing presses were there too.
