The Herald Chronicle will be converting its city home delivery subscriptions to the mail, beginning with the Tuesday, April 18, publication.
Publisher Jack Owens said increasing costs associated with home delivery service resulted in the publication’s decision to deliver the print edition by mail.
“While home delivery is a service we regret discontinuing, we’re confident that the local Post Office will provide excellent delivery, just as it does with many of our rural subscribers,” Owens said.
Currently, carrier delivery is in the home by 6 a.m. on Tuesday and Friday.
With the change to mail, subscribers will still have the same day delivery, just not as early, Owens said.
“For those who want to read the paper in the morning, you can still access the news through your Electronic Edition by 9 a.m.,” he said. “As a subscriber, if you haven’t signed up for your free Electronic Edition, you can contact our Circulation Department at (931) 967-2272 to sign up.”
For those with Post Office addresses who also receive the paper at home, they will need to contact the Herald Chronicle for a change of address to ensure no interruption in service occurs.
“In upcoming weeks, we will begin removing the Chronicle home delivery tubes in which many of you receive your paper,” Owens said. “We appreciate everyone’s subscription and look forward to enhancing our relationship with the Postal Service.”
