Globe & Mail deliveries in northern B.C. suspended in Oct
Printed product will stop shipping to Nfld., Labrador, parts of B.C. Oct. 1. Subs to be offered disc access to Globe Unlimited, Globe2Go.-- Simon Houpt (@simonhoupt) August 12, 2013
If you like to pore over your morning newspaper while drinking coffee, you won't have that option anymore, at least when it comes to the Globe and Mail.
As of October 1st, the paper will stop supplying its newsprint version to places like Prince George, Prince Rupert, Whistler, Sun Peaks, Revelstoke, and in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Books and Company, a bookstore in downtown Prince George, receives the Globe by truck and sells it at its storefront. Other local businesses, like hotels and shops, also receive the paper the same way.
The Globe says it spends more than a million and a half dollars for just 3,000 subscribers and calls the service inefficient.
It says it will offer its customers discounts for online access to the site instead.
So if the #cityofPG only gets digital versions of papers that have physical editions elsewhere, are we living in the future?-- Andrew Kurjata (@akurjata) August 13, 2013
