About the Community Shopper
The Shopper was a small, classified publication that served Western ND & Eastern MT since 1988, offering affordable print advertising solutions to Williston, ND, and the surrounding areas.
Vocella, Inc.© purchased the business in May 2022, and in August we changed the name to Community Shopper and the URL from theshopperinc.net to communityshopper.com. At this time, we also redesigned the paper adding color and articles featuring content specific to the area.
Established in 1987, The Shopper became the leading source of advertising around the Williston, ND area. Published every Thursday, The Shopper circulation has consistently grown over the years and is proudly boasts around 18,750 weekly readers.
Since its initial online presence in 2006, the website has made online presence possible, with a much wider audience spreading even into Canada.
As Williston and surrounding area grew rapidly, so did The Shopper’s readership and circulation. Our area grew so fast that The Shopper included not only a business directory for the area but the premier source for people to find jobs and housing. In 2012, NBC Rock Center reported that “The Shopper is your best source for jobs in Williston and surrounding areas.”
The Shopper offers the highest circulation, the greatest saturation, and the most flexibility at the lowest cost per thousands of households reached. While all media have their advantages, The Shopper is designed primarily for cost-effective advertising efficiency to get your message to as many of your potential customers as possible.
Whether you are looking to increase your sales, find the perfect employees, or purchase your dream home, Community Shopper has something for everyone! We help people find where it's at.
