Marysville Globe moves into new office on Cedar Avenue

MARYSVILLE — After redesigning its pages and changing its circulation to free home delivery, The Marysville Globe is about to make another move into the future.

After publishing from its offices at 8213-A State Avenue since 1972, The Globe is ready to move into a new home at 1085 Cedar Ave., next door to Eye Doctors, LTD.

Publisher of both The Globe and The Arlington Times, Stuart Chernis said the hope is to have the new Globe location open for business Sept. 2. A grand opening for the public is planned for sometime in the fall.

Until last year, the large Globe office on State was home to not only the paper’s editorial, advertising and office staff, but also to numerous large presses that printed the weekly paper on site.

“When Sound Publishing took over the paper, we decided to use our presses in Everett and we didn’t need as big a building,” Chernis said.

“We were really only using about one-third of the office,” he added in regard to the paper’s State Avenue location.

Operating numerous papers in the Puget Sound area, Sound Publishing purchased both The Globe and The Times in 2007.

Since the purchase, Sound has sold the presses that once churned out both The Globe and The Times. Largely outdated by American standards, the presses were sold to companies in Indonesia and, most recently, Peru.

Chernis said he and Sound management looked at up to a dozen locations around Marysville, but decided on the Cedar Avenue spot because it keeps The Globe near the center of the city.

The mailing address of the new Globe office is P.O. Box 145, Marysville, 98270. The telephone numbers will remain the same.
