Readers of Peace Arch News will soon notice the community paper on their door steps a little earlier in the week when a distribution change takes place later this month.
Effective the last week of June, PAN will be publishing on Tuesdays and Thursdays – moved from the current Wednesday and Friday publication – a change publisher Linda Klitch said will meet the growing demand for timely information.
“As our community grows and changes, so does the Peace Arch News,” Klitch said. “The one constant is that people still want to be fully engaged locally.”
Citing trends in consumer shopping patterns, Klitch said the need for advertising information to be disseminated earlier is greater than ever in today’s fast-paced world.
“We know that time is a precious commodity, and time is well spent staying informed,” she said, noting a recent Ipsos Reid survey that reported Peace Arch News is the preferred community newspaper of 93 per cent of readers in White Rock and South Surrey.
With the upcoming change at PAN, Klitch said the newspaper is looking forward to building upon its rich, 35-year history in the ever-growing community, and will “continue to strive in all of our publications to provide our community with top-notch local news coverage.”
“We wish to thank our advertisers, as well as our readers, for their continued support of their community newspaper,” she said.
The first Tuesday edition is set to publish June 28, followed by the first Thursday edition on June 30. Updated stories and breaking news are available online at www.peacearchnews.com
