Noteworthy advertisers through the years

Thanks for helping us to keep the lights on

As a free weekly newspaper that publishes every day for free online (i.e., without the much-dreaded paywall), the Charleston City Paper relies on advertising revenue to keep the doors open. While it’s impossible to list everyone who has purchased ads over the past 25 years, there are several advertisers who have stuck with us, year after year. We’d like to shine a light on some of these long-time friends, many of whom are still in business today and whose continued patronage benefits more than our bottom line — they inform our thousands of readers about deals, offers, events and cool stuff happening in shops and venues across the Lowcountry.

One group of advertisers that we want to single out but generally did not include in the list below is our friends in the beer, wine and spirits world. There are numerous brands, breweries, distilleries and distributors that have been among our best clients. 

To all of our advertisers, past and present, please know that whether you ran a classified liner or a full page every week, we thank you for your business. We couldn’t literally,
do what we do without you.
