There are three user-friendly ways to place a free classified ad:
Business ads are for business owners. They are not eligible for free advertising. Private party ads are for anyone who is a non-business owner. These ads are eligible for free classified advertising. If you are a private party trying to sell more than 3 of the same item, you will be considered a business.
Display advertising appears throughout the paper adjacent to the classified ads. It refers to graphically designed ads, often with logos, photos, or colored artwork. These ads are typically for businesses. Classified advertising, often referred to as "want ads," is primarily text where all the ads are presented together in a categorized list. Classifieds can be for private parties or businesses.
Private parties may submit up to 5 free classified ads. If you have other ads currently running, you must either cancel and replace those ads, or wait until they expire. You may choose to run more than 5 at a cost of $8 each additional ad.
Your free ads will run for 1 month. If you would like to continue to run your ads, please call to renew them.
