English term or phrase: moving to new quarters
We are moving our office in rural Georgia to a new location, and our marketing department insists that we use the phrase "moving to new quarters'. I believe this is an oudated phrase. "We have moved to a new location in the historic district" sounds better to me. Any suggestions?

English translation:sounds fine to me
Explanation:
Moving to new quarters sounds just fine to my Merkin ears. While I might not say that about a person, a company moving to new quarters sounds just fine.

Of course, I am a bit over 21, so maybe that is just my extensive vocabulary kicking in.
