The Paint Box reopens in Parr Lumber

Prineville Perk and Whats Brewing back on schedule this week for your caffeine fix


The Central Oregonian and the Madras Pioneer will be having an 8-Hour Mega Sale this Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., only!

Just what is the 8-Hour Mega Sale? It is a chance for all businesses that have a customer base in Crook or Jefferson County to market in either or both newspapers in the month of January and February at more than 60 percent off. It is an affordable way to purchase a half or full page ad, move inventory out the door, and do it in any or all publications between Jan. 14 and Feb. 28, 2014.

Is there a catch? Yes, of course there is, but all you have to do is contact us before 5 p.m., on Friday, Jan. 10, and let us know what size ad(s) you want to place and in which papers you would like to place them. That is it, so hardly a catch at all. You can even add full color at a discounted rate.

The Central Oregonian publishes every Tuesday and Friday, while the Madras Pioneer publishes every Wednesday.

Need more information? Just give us a call at 541-447-6205 and we can go over all the details with you, work with your budget, target your customers, and help you save money at the same time.

The Parr Lumber Company has announced that Blaine and Linda Jensen, owners of The Paint Box paint store, has joined forces with Parr Lumber to continue selling top brand paints and painting supplies at the 601 N. Main St. location.
