Thursday’s News and Sentinel to offer shopping deals

PARKERSBURG – The tryptophan barely will be wearing off as the area will begin looking toward the holiday shopping season, and all local deals can be found Thursday morning in The Parkersburg News and Sentinel.

“We have found that the Thanksgiving edition of The News and Sentinel is a holiday tradition with thousands of families in our region,” said Publisher Jim Spanner.

With so many deals to be found during Black Friday shopping, Spanner said Thanksgiving always brings out the largest edition of The News and Sentinel.

“The Thanksgiving edition is our largest newspaper of the year, with more than three dozen sales fliers and catalogs included,” he said.

Spanner suggested subscribing to The News and Sentinel for people to get their hands on all of the fliers, but area residents also may pick up Thursday’s newspaper at local stores.

“The best way to be guaranteed a copy of the Thanksgiving edition is to be a home subscriber, but if not, look for it at your favorite retail location,” Spanner said. “Because of the popularity of our Thanksgiving edition, we’ve increased the number of copies available in 2013 and our staff will be actively restocking at our retail locations.”

And with it being so large, Spanner said the price hasn’t increased from previous years.

“Even though the Thanksgiving edition is bigger than ever, we have not raised the price from last year of $2,” he said.

With so many local shoppers picking up the newspaper to prepare for their shopping adventure, Spanner said The News and Sentinel is proud to be a part of that tradition.

“Many holiday shoppers plan their entire shopping experience around what they find in The News and Sentinel. We are pleased to be a part of that family tradition,” Spanner said.
