For 35 plus years, the Trading Journal has been a household
name in Southern West Virginia and Southwest Virginia.
Offering FREE classified advertising and affordable display
or business ads, the Trading Journal is available in area
retail outlets each Sunday. We have grown from a 4-page 8 ½
x 11” publication to a 40 or 48 page tabloid paper.
As many of our readers have requested a webpage and online
advertising capabilities, we are introducing our new
interactive site to bring a new way of distributing
information faster and easier than ever before. In this
format, “you” can easily place your own classified ads that
will appear online and you will be able to post church,
community, and school announcement. Another feature is that
you will be able to share information including review,
news, events, opinions, photographs, and much more by simply
adding your information along with your name. You may also
add images and photographs to highlight your information.
However, we will reserve the right to omit items that we
feel may be inappropriate or offensive to other readers.
Most information will be free as with the print Trading
Journal. However, any ads for services or retail for profit
and all rental ads will be charged a minimal fee.
The print edition of the Trading Journal will continue to
operate as usual. The ads you place in the print edition will not
automatically appear in the free web site edition. So you have the
opportunity of using one or both publications.
what you choose, the Trading Journal continues to be the
leader of classified advertising in Mercer County and
sections of Giles, Monroe, Tazewell, Bland, and McDowell
The good news is that you may
purchase your Trading Journal online instead of going to
the local outlet. Along with your online purchase, you will
be able to access current and past editions.
Our digital edition, which can be read on your
computer, iPad, iPhone or any smart phone, is extremely easy
to use as you can “search articles and classifieds.” To
experience our new feature, click on the “subscribe now”
button in the left column.
The Trading Journal would not be what it is today without
the many businesses who have supported us throughout the
past 35 plus years.
Our online edition will permit businesses to a "Free Line
Listing" (name, address, telephone number) in our Online
Biz Directory and if you want more than a single line, we
can supply an overview of your company, a picture logo plus
live email and web links for a small monthly charge.
Advertisers can also place "online display ads" in the right
column of most pages. Widths are restricted by web layout
but various depth sizes are available to accommodate your
