Founded over one hundred and fifty years ago, in 1859, The Rep is one of South Africa’s oldest, and most notable, community newspapers. The Rep has, over its extremely long history, been witness to epoch-changing events both within the country and on the vast international stage, and is a trusted source of information regarding local and community news, church and charity news, local business news, local school events and pupil achievements, lifestyle news, entertainment and more. The paper’s editorial team has, over the course of many years, cemented The Rep’s reputation for being a consistent and factually reliable publication, and its future will undoubtedly continue this strong tradition.
Queenstown, being a regional and commercial centre, is home to a wide variety of vibrant cultures, and its quickly developing business and industrial zone has expanded and grown the town’s economy, creating many employment opportunities along the way.
The Rep has a print order of 7 500 copies, distributed weekly on Fridays in Queenstown, Cathcart, Sterkstroom, Cofimvaba, Lady Frere, Tarkastad, Ilinge, Molteno, Stutterheim, Dordrecht and Whittlesea. It is also sold in retail stores in East London where it is eagerly awaited by former Queenstown residents who have retired to the city.
The Rep’s high quality advertising inserts also play an important role in the communication of useful information as they keep an economically active market up to date on the town’s latest retail and service offerings, not to mention specials. For advertises, this marketing channel is extremely effective as it reaches the decision makers of households that conduct business in the area.
