Family owned for over one hundred years. Wow! There are very few businesses that can claim to be family owned for that long, but here in Placerville we have such a business—The Placerville News Company. Since 1912, our family has been here to help you and your family. One thing that has served us well over the years and helped us reach this mark is our diversity of merchandise. From Schwinn bicycles to Fine Bone China, there are very few things that we have not carried in the last one hundred years. Today we continue that tradition: from artist supplies, puzzles and tobacco to Yankee Candles, Lead Crystal, and yes we still carry Bone China tea cups!
The Newsstand (as the Store is affectionately referred to by the locals) is a great place to purchase gifts for anybody on our list. We offer FREE gift-wrapping all year, not just at Christmas. With our selection of games, toys models and coloring books, The Placerville News Company is a great place to shop for the young at heart on your Christmas list.
We are easy to locate, being in front of one of El Dorado County’s most notable landmarks—the Bell Tower. Should you want to find somewhere in the gold country that’s not as convenient as our location, we have both Topographical Maps and Road Maps to help your quest. We carry World Globe and Atlases for those who want to travel a bit farther, and travel books that will help you find something to do when you get there.
Speaking of getting away, should you be the type who likes to get lost in a good book, our selection is sure to please you. From the New York Times Bestseller list to the fantastic writings of our local author community, we have something for you. Maybe you want something lighter to read—browse our selection of thousands of magazine titles. Should you not find what you want to read in our selection, we would be happy to see if we can order it for you.
Come experience history and visit The Placerville News Company. Third-generation owner Mary Meader and her two children, Chris and Jeff, are always nearby to help you with your shopping needs.
