Long-running Costa del Sol magazine shuts down

AFTER nine years, one of the Costa del Sol’s oldest magazines is to end its print edition.

Friday-Ad Spain – which was set up in 2002 – is to concentrate on its online operation.

After an extremely tough year the magazine, which covers the Costa del Sol and Gibraltar from its Mijas office, will have its last edition on October 7.

The company is part of Friday Media Group, which owns over 80 classified websites around the world.

“It has been the aim for nearly two years to go online-only, that is what we have been working towards,” Friday-Ad Spain’s manager Dawn Charlton, confirmed to the Olive Press.

“The Gibraltar edition ended on August 5 and the Costa del Sol edition will run for the last time on October 7.”

She also expressed her dismay that one of the coast’s main newspaper’s – who we cannot name for legal reasons – had implied to advertisers that Friday-Ad had gone bust.

She later issued a press release, which stated: “We are all very excited about the future and want to reassure you that we are still in the same office, with the same staff and the same contact numbers as ever.”
