MOUNTOLIVE -- The building occupied by the Mount Olive Tribune newspaper is for sale. The paper is seeking a smaller location.

"We're right across the street from the pending Wal-Mart and we have more space than we need," said Publisher Bob Woronoff.

"It's approximately 15,000 square feet, and we've got 10 or 11 people working there, so two-thirds of the building is empty."

Woronoff said the first step would be selling the building and land, then the company would find a new location.

"Our preference would be to go downtown, but nothing's been determined there," he said.

The Tribune is owned by Benmot Publishing of Raleigh, and published in Benson.
