Metro to deliver OBJ papers
OBJ is going for the green. Green outdoor newspaper boxes, that is.
OBJ has entered into a multi-year distribution agreement with Metro Ottawa.
The agreement includes 50 new outdoor newspaper boxes located in the downtown core that include both Metro Ottawa and OBJ.
In addition to these outdoor boxes, Metro will deliver OBJ’s biweekly newspaper to 1,150 other businesses and public access distribution points, such as hotel lobbies, libraries and large office complexes.
“I think this is a big step forward,” says OBJ publisher Michael Curran. “When the system is fully operational, we’ll have 50 new outdoor boxes downtown, we will have 2,400 addressed copies to 700 targeted downtown businesses and, to cap it off, 450 bulk distribution drops across the region to businesses and public racks. This will keep the newspaper’s 11,000 printed copies very visible and accessible to our readers.”
