The newspapers of Areawide Media are offering a special subscription rate for Christmas gift buying. The special price of $5 off the regular annual subscription rate is available to new subscribers only who call Areawide's main office on the following Thursday nights: Nov. 7, Nov. 14, Nov. 21 and Dec. 5.
"We're offering this deal just in time for Christmas," said Areawide Publisher Janie Flynn. "You can buy a gift subscription for someone you care about -- or for yourself."
Any new subscriber who calls between the hours of 5 and 8 p.m. on the selected evenings can take advantage of the deal.
The rates are good for The News, the Villager Journal or The South Missourian News. A new subscription can begin any date in December the subscriber requests.
