IT’S been another mission getting the Olive Press out around Andalucia and the Costa del Sol.

But by last weekend, our team of distributors managed to get extra bundles into many places, including supermarkets, vets and petrol stations, not to mention paper shops and hospitals.

And the end result was a comprehensive success as 100% of the papers got out into the hands of expats and locals around the country.

By focussing on putting double and triple the numbers in the dozens of drops actually open, we made sure our clients and readers were both served through this horrible crisis.

Many people made it out to pick up the so called Expat Survival Issue, which had over a dozen upbeat, positive stories on what to do during the 6 week lockdown.

In particular there were many more copies of the Olive Press in key spots like Overseas supermarket in Mijas and Marbella than our rivals, as photos demonstrated.

“It was a great success to get so many papers out,” Distribution Manager Graham Warters explained. “With the official paperwork allowing us to work it meant we were able to slide through police checkpoints quickly without any issue.”

The places below are some of the drops which definitely got papers from the last issue.
