Star Advertiser (defunct)

The Star Advertiser (originally the Star-Advertiser, but the hyphen now seems to have been dropped) was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the Greater Ipswich area in south-eastern Suffolk.

It was published by Archant Suffolk as a companion to its paid-for evening newspaper for the area, the Ipswich Star, whose editorial offices it shared.

It was launched in October 2009 as a replacement for the earlier Advertiser series.

There were two editions:

  • Ipswich
  • Felixstowe

An edition for Stowmarket, the Stow Advertiser, was replaced in February 2012 by the Stowmarket Mercury, which is associated with the East Anglian Daily Times rather than the Evening Star.

It formed part of a group together with the Coastal Advertiser, until that newspaper was replaced by the Coastal Scene in March 2011.

All came out on Thursdays. E-editions were also available on the websites.

It was superseded by a weekly Advertiser edition of the Ipswich Star in the first half of 2012.
