Note to readers: New look, new rates
As you have already noticed, the look of The News has been tweaked.
After presenting the same face for the last several years, we felt a “refresh” was timely.
Our masthead has been modified, we have adopted new banners for our Opinion, Sports and Classifieds pages. The goal of this redesign, which retains the popular tartans in our masthead and banners, is to provide you with a livelier and easier to read format.
At the same time, because of ever-increasing operating costs, new subscription and advertising rates are being introduced so we can continue to serve you better.
We last adjusted our subscription and single copy rates in 2012.
As you well know, during that period, operating costs, including taxes, hydro, fuel, printing and postage expenses, have continued to rise.
In order to offset some of these higher expenses, The News is obliged to, as of September 1, increase our subscription and single copy rates. As of that date, a single copy will cost $1.40, the one-year local subscription rate will be $60. For subscribers living outside of the region, the cost will be $80 for one year. Subscribers living outside of Canada will pay $230. All of these prices include taxes.
Rates for classified and display advertising, which also have not been adjusted in recent years, are also increasing.
What has not changed is our commitment to you, to provide you with the best community newspaper possible.
The News thanks our many loyal readers and advertisers for your ongoing support in this our 126th year of bringing you the news of Glengarry.
We hope you like our new appearance, and understand why we are increasing rates.
As always, we would like to hear what you think of us. You can call me at 613525-2020, extension 23, or e-mail [email protected]garrynews.ca, or drop by the office at 3 Main St., Alexandria.
