Citizen Herald announces drop-off location at B&B
By Kim Edward Adams

The Jesup Citizen Herald and B&B Farm Store are announcing the location of a drop-off site for subscriptions, ads, news items or other communication for the newspaper at the B&B Farm Store in Jesup.

Citizen Herald publisher Kim Edward Adams and Donnie Bloes of B&B Farm Store are pleased to announce that newspaper readers and advertisers will be able to drop off items at B&B Farm Store during their normal business hours Monday through Saturday. The store is located at 1134 220th Street, across the street from Jesup Gym Equipment and just east of the Buchanan-Shady Grove T-intersection.

“This is a drop-off site only,” Adams noted. “Communication directly with the newspaper staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via email or phone.”

Call 319-827-1128 any time to talk to a staff member or at the very least leave a voicemail message.

Emails include: editor@jesupcitizenherald.com; news@jesupcitizenherald.com; ads@jesupcitizenherald.com; or publisher@jesupcitizenherald.com.

The newspaper office at 930 Sixth Street in Jesup will be closed permanently by the end of April, Adams announced. The space, about 2600 square feet, including several offices and the portrait studio, will be available for rent. Contact Ray Hagarty at 319-290-6689 for information.

“Virtually all our employees are now working from home at their request,” Adams said, “and the transition has gone very smoothly from an office-centered newspaper operation to one spread out throughout the community.

“With this transition, I came to recognize that a physical office was no longer needed,” Adams continued. “Almost all of our business has been conducted via email and phone for some time now, and with almost all employees wanting to work from home, we haven’t been able to staff the office easily since the end of last year.

“Our primary graphic arts person shifted to working from home just before Christmas,” Adams said. “The transition was remarkably smooth. And since then everyone else, except Dee (Loecher) and I, have moved their work to their homes. It became apparent, with the little office traffic that we have, that there was no longer a need to provide an office space for our employees or customers. However, we still wanted to offer the convenience of a drop-off place in town for news items, subscription or advertising checks, photos to include with weddings or engagements or other news. Donnie Bloes has been most helpful in allowing us to use his business as a drop-off point.

“Our office hours at 930 Sixth Street in Jesup will continue to be indeterminate – as they have been through much of the past two months due in part to the snow, ice and treacherous temperatures. I invite anyone who has something for the newspaper to begin dropping off at B&B Farm Store, starting today, Wednesday, March 13,” Adams said.

“We have moved out most all of the essentials,” Adams said. He plans to have a number of tag sale days during March and April to sell out the remaining desks, file cabinets, chairs, bookshelves and other office furniture, as well as a large amount of miscellaneous items, including picture frames.

“We’ll announce our tag sale days and hours as soon as we can determine them,” Adams said.

“The Citizen Herald has been published every week in this community since November of 1899,” Adams concluded. “It will continue to be published every week, providing an on-going history of Jesup, with news, photos, business ads, sports and more. I want to thank the community of Jesup for their continuing support of quality local journalism through the Citizen Herald.”
