Grangemouth Advertiser (defunct)

The Grangemouth Advertiser was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to homes in the town of Grangemouth on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth.

It was founded in 1900 as The Grangemouth Advertiser and Eastern District Chronicle but adopted the shorter title above in 1979.

It was published by Johnston (Falkirk), the original company behind the nationwide Johnston Press group of regional newspaper publishers. The main editorial offices were shared with Johnston’s paid-for title for the area, the Falkirk Herald, but there was also a local office in Union Street in Grangemouth.

It was a sub-edition of the Falkirk Advertiser, which was the main title in a three-title Advertiser series for the Falkirk and West Lothian council areas.

The Advertiser had no website of its own; the link below is to the Herald’s website.

It came out on Wednesdays.

It merged in February 2011 with the Falkirk Advertiser to form the Falkirk & Grangemouth Advertiser.
