Seven stories in the news for Thursday, March 30:
NEW GLASGOW – While passing through the intersection between Stellarton and Westville roads, drivers may have noticed a new addition to the area – a large, cylinder, digital rotating ad machine sitting on a concrete base in front of The Modern Barber.
The sign is owned and operated by a new marketing company, YOLO Marketing, which operates out of The Modern Barber building at the corner of Stellarton and Westville Roads in New Glasgow.
Co-owners of YOLO Marketing, Carolyn Delorey and Debbie VanSickle, started up the company over the last few weeks and have hired two employees, a graphic designer and technology specialist.
The rotating digital ad machine was imported from Taiwan and Delorey said it’s the only one of its kind in North America.
It sits on a concrete base, is controlled by its own computer system inside the company’s office, has 14 million pixels and over a million colours programmed.
Check back for more on this new sign later today and in tomorrow's paper.
