There are many reasons why Thrifty Nickel is a great place to advertise. One of these reasons is that our staff really knows their stuff and how to create effective ad campaigns for any type of business. So let’s meet a few of the beautiful smiling faces that make Thrifty Nickel such an amazing place!


Our manager Jay had a background in radio sales before he came to the Thrifty Nickel team twenty-one years ago! In my opinion, Jay is the best manager in the world and will do anything he can to assist anybody he meets. Brenda has been part of Thrifty Nickel even longer than Jay, over twenty-two years now. Besides our great paper, Brenda previously worked for another paper doing print sales. Another one of our great front office staff is Virginia and she’s been working for Thrifty Nickel twelve years now, and is always happy to take your calls and help write the best ads possible for you. Another one of our friendly front office staff is Mary. Her customers say they absolutely love her attention to detail in assisting with their ads.


One of our talented production artists is Shaughn and he’s been with the Thrifty team for  more than fourteen years now, creating amazing displays ads that will catch eyeballs and bring your company more business! Joining Shaughn in our production office is Letty who has been with us for several years now. Letty has many years of experience with ad design and that experience has been a great to asset to our company. Our newest production hire is Debra and we’re very happy to have her on our squad. Debra helps to make sure all display ads are 100% correct so that we have customers who are 100% satisfied with their advertising decisions. That brings us to our last production staff member, Trey. Always working hard, Trey pulls double duty working in production and being the Delivery Manager for our nifty paper. We believe that our production team is the best in Texas and probably the entire universe as well. Without their dedication there’s no way we’d be able to get our paper out on time each and every single Thursday.


When it comes to outside sales Tammie has been our number one for many years in a row now. She’s certainly an expert in her field and is always quick to respond to any question you may have. It’s safe to say that Tammie loves Thrifty Nickel and we love her right back.
Michelle recently joined the Thrifty Nickel team and brought her skills from her past role in TV advertising with her. Michelle is part of our outside sales team and is never too busy to help an advertiser out.


Shawna is another one of new faces and previously worked in the field of radio advertising. Outside sales is Shawna’s forte and she can help your company get the best advertising for its specific targeted needs.


Ashley worked on a prominent political campaign in Austin before bringing her talents to Thrifty Nickel. She’s been working outside sales for a good period of time now and really excels at making sure her customers are happy with their advertising.


Last but not least, we have Jim who has worked for our paper longer than anyone. Jim has worked for us thirty-six years now! Think about that for a second, most of you probably weren’t even born thirty-six years ago. Jim loves Thrifty Nickel so much that he actually retired and came back to work for us! It really is hard to stay away from something you love, thank you for your many years of service Jim!
