When is The Sentinel moving?

This is a question we at The Sentinel receive a lot.

In summer 2016, a large for-sale sign went up in front of The Sentinel building on East North Street in Carlisle. The 2.35-acre lot and 25,000-square-foot building were listed at $1.35 million.

The property has been on the market ever since.

The eventual sale will not see the paper leave the downtown Carlisle area, Publisher Gary Adkisson said, but is being done because of changes made to printing process of the paper rendered a large portion of the current building vacant.

In April 2016, The Sentinel started printing its paper off site at the Frederick News-Post facility in Frederick, Maryland. The decision to move the printing of the paper off-site was made after weighing the cost to replace the aging printing press.

Once the building is sold, the news company will likely move into a yet-to-be determined office site in the downtown Carlisle area.

So, when is the move happening?

That is still up in the air.

Adkisson said the move will likely occur between 60 and 90 days from the point the current building is sold.

The building was listed with Buz Wolfe of Wolfe & Company Realtors.
