We are well pleased with Grimes, McGovern & Associates and their efforts with the sale of our newspaper. While continuing to develop new prospects, they also renewed previous contacts which resulted in the sale. They continued to offer assistance with minor issues that have arisen after the sale. We would recommend them to anyone pondering the sale of their newspaper.
