Daily Progress Alerts Customers of Thanksgiving Paper Price Hike

Posted: Updated:
The Daily Progress The Daily Progress

The Black Friday, ad-stuffed Daily Progress newspaper will cost readers more this year.

EZPay subscribers received an email from the paper's publisher Monday. It explains the newspaper is increasing the price of its Thanksgiving day edition to $2.50.

The email informs subscribers that the one-day price hike will also cause subscriptions to expire earlier to make up the difference. The Daily Progress claims the Thanksgiving paper is one of the most expensive to print and difficult to deliver due to its bulk.

Read the email subscribers received below:

Dear EZPay subscriber:

On Thanksgiving Day, we will deliver to you the biggest newspaper of the year! As always, it is loaded with information you can use and valuable advertising to get your holiday season off to the right start. Because of its sheer size, the Thanksgiving Day newspaper is one of the most expensive to produce and difficult to distribute. And many of our carriers must use additional help to complete deliveries in a timely manner.

Effective this year, we will charge a premium rate of $2.50 for the Thanksgiving Day newspaper. This charge will be debited to your newspaper account on Thanksgiving Day. The small increase in the rate for the Thanksgiving Day newspaper will result in a slightly earlier expiration date for your current subscription term.

We hope you can appreciate the value of the Thanksgiving Day newspaper and the necessity for the premium charge to partially cover our added expenses and those of your carrier.

Thank you for reading and supporting the Charlottesville Daily Progress.
