The 'Classifieds' are published by Southern Business Services Pty Ltd . We are a small family owned, independent publisher located in the Huon Valley in the south of Tasmania. We are not affiliated with any other interstate or local business. We employ 7 local staff who mainly work part time. Our writers live locally. The Classifieds are printed in-house on our own high speed B&W printer using Australian made 10% recycled paper. We print on demand with the number of copies printed each week tailored to suit demand from the readers. Publishing the Cygnet and Channel Classifieds and the Kingston Classifieds is totally reliant on the support of our advertisers and our readers who support those advertisers.
