New era opens for the ‘Mail’


With change comes opportunity and Allied Press, publisher of the Oamaru Mail, is pleased to announce readers in the Waitaki will have a super-sized free weekly community newspaper early next month, replacing the five-day a week publication.

The Oamaru Mail has proudly served the people of the Waitaki region since 1876, reporting the news, debating the issues and celebrating the successes of a fiercely proud and vibrant community. And that’s not going to change. Local news is at the heart of Allied Press and we will relaunch the Mail on Friday, September 11, as a must read community newspaper, delivered free to every home in the district. The masthead will live on, with a much wider readership and renewed focus on you and your community. So watch this space.
