That's Life - March 1, 2023

Another page in time has been turned at Capital Printers Ltd. or “The Capital” as many of you know it.

The years have flown by and it became clear that we needed to downsize. That being said, we have sold our Main Street, Three Hills commercial properties.

Monday, February 27, 2023, was the final day that we were open to the public.

Capital Printers Ltd. has had a downtown presence since 1916. Being the oldest, established business in the Town of Three Hills is something to be proud of.

I admit that I don’t accept change as quickly as others. This one has been a bit easier. Technology has allowed us to take this step.

Your issue of “The Capital’’ will continue to arrive in your mailbox each week. We ask that all news, photos, classified and display ads are sent via email to, and please include your phone number on all emails. Please call us at 403-443-5133 and feel free to text me at 403-443-0799. If you require to meet in person please contact us to make an appointment.

And remember, Capital Printers mailing address remains the same at Box 158, Three Hills, AB T0M 2A0, so keep those cards and letters coming in.

In closing, I would like to stress that we have not sold the newspaper. Just the building.

Capital Printers Ltd. is also not going out of business, as some rumours would have it.

It’s a simple matter of change.

Three Hills RCMP Sergeant Jamie Day has announced that there will be a Three Hills RCMP Youth Academy to be held at the Prairie Christian Academy from July 10 to July 14, 2023.
