ABBOTSFORD (WAOW) — Potential postal service changes could mean some newspaper readers won’t see the front page until days after it’s printed.
TP Printing in Abbotsford sends 42,000 papers every week through the US Postal Service. With a proposal to end overnight shipping in the works, by the time readers get the paper, the news may not be so new.
“It’s a weekly but it needs to be known now. Not five days from now,” said publisher Carol O’Leary. “We need to be current. We try to be as current as possible.”
Changes to the postal service standards would tighten up cut off times for all aspects of their black-and-white business.
