MEN Media in final move to Oldham this weekend
The Manchester Evening News and its weekly sister titles, will complete their move from Scott Place in Manchester to Trinity Mirror’s Chadderton, Oldham site this weekend, North-West media site How-Do reports today.
How-Do says: "Despite the lengthy preparations and notice period the significance of the move is certain to reverberate around certain pockets of the Manchester media community, bringing to an end as it does the association of the MEN’s HQ with the city where the paper was born in 1868."
Trinity points out that the paper will still retain a city centre presence, in Piccadilly Gardens, while, in a statement prepared for How-Do, the management noted: “there are plans for advertising and editorial staff to hot-desk at various locations throughout Greater Manchester.”
