Jefferson Star moving offices
The Jefferson Star is moving down the street to a new location beginning Wednesday after more than a half-century at its current location.
The Star’s new home is 123 E. Main St., adjacent to Floral Classics and Vogue.
APG Idaho President Roger Plothow and Star General Manager Earlene Poole wanted to make sure the Star retained a location in the heart of downtown Rigby.
“In its 114-year history, the Star has always been an important fixture downtown,” Plothow said. “When the time came to find a new home, there was no alternative but to find a place on Main Street.”
The Star is Jefferson County’s only weekly newspaper. It also operates a website, jefferson starnews.com, and provides a wide variety of advertising and marketing options.
The new office offers ample on-street parking.
