Denver Post will go to Sundays only in GJ in July
The Denver Post will limit its circulation in the Grand Junction area to Sundays only beginning in early July, said Jim Nolan, director of communications for the Denver Newspaper Agency.
Grand Valley customers currently are able to get seven-day-a-week home delivery of the paper.
The circulation change will affect customers in areas approximately 100 miles or more from Denver, Nolan said. This change will include single-copy sales as well, he said. Denver Post newspaper racks can be found throughout Colorado and in bordering states.
Subscribers in the outlying areas will be offered a conversion to the electronic edition of the paper, which gives access to every page of the print edition online, Nolan said. He said the paper expects it can retain most, if not all, of its subscribers despite the change.
The affected subscribers will be notified by mail this week or next.
Customers who were receiving weekend editions of the paper from a joint-subscription agreement with smaller community papers — including the Grand Junction Free Press — no longer will get the Sunday Post from those outlets after the change takes place, Nolan said.
The Denver Post circulation department will contact these individuals to offer them Sunday-only subscriptions.
The Daily Sentinel also made changes to some of its delivery areas effective April 20. Some Colorado subscribers outside of Mesa County now receive The Daily Sentinel three days a week — Wednesday, Friday and Sunday — with the electronic edition available the other days of the week.
Grand County, Utah, readers can receive the Sunday Daily Sentinel with the option of the electronic edition the other days of the week.
The local paper-delivery crew was informed of the changes at a meeting earlier this week.
They were given a date of July 12 for the start of the Sunday-only delivery.
