Today marks the end of an era for a much-loved and respected publication. 

The presses will stop for the Bermuda Sun for the last time, creating a void that we will lament for some time to come. 

This closing is a sad day indeed for Bermuda; it is like losing a dear friend.  

The Sun could always be relied upon for having a high standard of reporting, for being fair and balanced, and for being in touch with the people.

They made a tremendous contribution to our community — for 50 years the Bermuda Sun has served Bermuda well. 

They covered a wide range of topics excellently, providing useful, relevant and meaningful information. 

Their content was always reliable, their stories were in-depth and interesting and they have always had a great team of people.

We at Consumer Affairs are appreciative of our association with the Bermuda Sun; it has been a relationship that we have certainly enjoyed and benefited from.  

Valuable

This newspaper has been a valuable partner in our efforts to share vital information that helped consumers become better shoppers.  

They were an integral part of our education strategy and a trusted resource to reach consumers.

 We offer a heartfelt thank you for allowing us space in this newspaper for numerous years. 

We will truly miss the Bermuda Sun and all of the great people associated with it. 

We extend to the entire Bermuda Sun team best wishes for the future.
