“The Washington Post” recently published an article by Jen Chaney entitled “Scranton, Making All the Dwight Moves,” detailing the impact the hit television show “The Office” has had on the city of Scranton.

The article highlights the differences between the Scranton depicted on “The Office” and the real Electric City – such as the nonexistent Chili’s. Despite the minor inaccuracies the makers of the show strive to find those small details that can only be found in the true Scranton.

Chaney also points out the impact the show has had on the city. Our mayor Chris Doherty along with local businesswoman Michele Dempsey were quoted in the article giving their opinions on how “The Office” has changed Scranton.
