Come see our newly renovated office

Published 8:30pm Tuesday, September 24, 2013

If it’s been a while since you last visited the Washington Daily News, you might not recognize the place.

Over the past several months, many of our customers and guests have been surprised by the physical appearance of our offices at 217 N. Market St.

With help from Washington-based WIMCO general contractors, we recently completed a full-scale renovation of our space in a downtown building more than 100 years old.

They seem to know they’re in the right place, but many of our recent visitors still ask just to make sure. That’s understandable, given the nature of the changes.

We’re proud of the new look and hope you’ll find our office open and welcoming. This community newspaper, after all, is yours. We invite you to stop by.

Come celebrate with us at our Business After Hours, organized through the Washington-Beaufort County Chamber of Commerce, Thursday, Sept. 26, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. RSVP to 946-9168 or

If you can’t make it to the Business After Hours, we still hope you’ll pay us a visit. Of course, we’d love if you shared a news tip or renewed your subscription, but you don’t need any particular reason to swing by. Stop in simply to take a peek or say hello.

You might note several of our recent changes, from the look of the office to the look of the newspaper, but some things haven’t changed.

The Washington Daily News remains dedicated to serving our community, much as it did in its earliest beginnings way back in 1872.

We remain the primary source for local news and information, our products used more than any other to make local purchasing decisions.

The Daily News remains your community newspaper.

And we hope to see you soon.


Ashley Vansant is publisher of the Washington Daily News. He can be reached at or 252-946-2144.
