Auburn Trader, Foothills Marketplace expansion planned
-A +A
The Auburn Trader has moved to a new location on Highway 49, a few doors up the street from its former location. The new address is 1115 Grass Valley Highway, with the office located between Walker’s Office Supply and Superfast Copy business. And that is not all that is new at Penny Power Publications. Penny Chase is the new general manager of both The Trader and the Foothills Marketplace, a direct-mailed monthly product in Grass Valley. Chase joins the staff after holding several management positions at the Hanford Sentinel as well as having worked at The Fresno Bee and the Visalia Times Delta newspapers. “I am excited for the opportunity to not only change locations but begin a new chapter in my life,” Chase said. “So far everyone I have met has been very friendly.” Chase said there is a lot of opportunity for advertisers in the Trader publications. “My goal is to build the Auburn Trader into the top shopping force in this area,” she said. Bonnie Pebley, who has served the past 11 years as general manager of The Trader publications, moves over to be the senior advertising representative for both publications. Pebley has been with the publications for more than 28 years, and said she is excited to be moving back full time into a sales position to “better serve my customers.” “Penny will bring new energy and a history of growing sales,” said Bill Brehm Jr., president of Brehm Communications, Inc. parent company of the Penny Power Publications. “She will be teaming with Bonnie and the rest of the sales staff to expand the sales efforts and grow the products. As we begin our 29th year in business, we look forward to the future and serving the residents of the Auburn and Grass Valley communities,” Brehm said. The move to the new office location was made the first week of October. The phone number remains (530) 888-7653, and office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. ~ Staff report ------------------------- Penny Power Publications Where: 1115 Grass Valley Highway, Auburn Hours: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays Telephone: (530) 888-7653
