Newspaper to be delivered by mail

Published 7:04 pm Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Beginning with the Saturday, April 16, edition, The Post-Searchlight will be delivered to home subscribers via the U.S. Postal Service.

Subscribers will receive the newspaper along with their regular mail.

Rising gasoline costs, combined with a desire to keep subscriber rates as low as possible, led to the decision to change the delivery method, according to The Post-Searchlight publisher Jeff Findley.

“We basically had two choices to make—either raise the subscription rates significantly or change our delivery method. I firmly believe we did the right thing by keeping our subscription rates as low as possible,” Findley said.

The newspaper will be delivered by the Postal Service on Wednesdays and Saturdays, giving customers same-day service.

“Not only will we be able to keep the rates constant, we will be able to offer our customers a very high level of delivery reliability with this change,” Findley continued.

The Post-Searchlight will continue to be available throughout the area in coin racks and through dealers at numerous locations.
