Gallopade settles into new location in PTC
Acclaimed local children’s book publisher Gallopade International announces the relocation of its corporate, editorial, and sales/marketing offices and warehouse facilities to 611 Highway 74 S, Suite 2000 in Peachtree City. In a new building, located just a stone’s throw away from Falcon Field, Gallopade’s many components will be united underneath one roof.
When asked about the relocation from the company’s previous headquarters across town, Gallopade President Michele Yother said, “Combining all of our company’s departments into one central location supports an efficient and smooth business operation. We were delighted to have found such a location in Peachtree City, where we can remain accessible to our local customers and fans.”

Her daughter, Michele Yother, and son, Michael Longmeyer, now run the company.
