Gorge on holiday deals early with newspaper inserts on Wednesday
PARKERSBURG — What’s stuffed more than the turkey on Thanksgiving?
The deals in the advertising inserts in The Parkersburg News and Sentinel and The Marietta Times on Thanksgiving Day.
Shoppers who can’t wait for the newspaper can get a headstart as The News and Sentinel and The Times will sell a package of the inserts on Wednesday for $5, said Phil Waterman, circulation director for The News and Sentinel and The Times.
“Buy as many as you want,” he said.
In Parkersburg, the inserts will be sold in the parking lot adjacent to the newspaper from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Waterman said. In Marietta, the advertising inserts also will be sold from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the parking lot at Stacey’s Dance Studio next to the Cone and Shake and at The Marietta Times office at 700 Channel Lane, he said.
Traffic control is high on the minds and people will be around to keep the movement of cars moving as efficiently as possible, Waterman said. In Parkersburg, the easiest route would be to enter the parking lot from Juliana Street, he said.
Look for the giant turkey in the parking lot, he said.
“Seems like every year we back up traffic,” Waterman said.
