Metroland Printing, Publishing & Distributing has purchased Oakville (ON) Today, effective October 26, from Lars Melander.
Melander will stay on as general manager and is continuing to operate business as usual.
The paper originally hit the street in 1984 under the title Abbey’s Own. Melander changed its name in 1991 to the Abbey Oaks News and again in 2001 to Oakville Today. The 26,500 circulation weekly covers the northern portion of Oakville, including the neighbourhood of Glen Abbey.
