It was previously part of the Norwich-based Archant group’s Scottish operation, but came into the ownership of Johnston Press, along with Archant’s other seven Scottish titles, in April 2007. The editorial offices were in Pollokshields in Glasgow.
It came out on Thursdays.
There were two editions: one for Paisley & Renfrewshire and the other for Barrhead & Renfrewshire.
It ceased publication in late 2010. The website is no longer available, although Johnston Press still retained the paisleyandrenfrewextra.co.uk domain name as of July 2013.
