Is the old habit of that traditional morning read all but dead? Has the next day's fish and chip wrapping now finally been confined to the bin? (I think H&S killed that off really)
However according to an article I was reading less and less papers are being sold these days with many of us getting our papers electronically. Also, the age group who like that hard copy paper versions are now significantly reducing in number. According to the article for many shops the humble newspaper has now become pretty much a loss leader.
Is this why It seems that less and less sites are now 'doing' papers? I was told by one site owner that this was due to reduced orders and that the local newsagents, who were also experiencing much reduced footfall through their doors had decided not to deliver them to sites, as this had reduced their opportunity for the 'upselling' of Worthers Originals, Polos and Extra Strong Mints. Afterall, you can't get them electronically can you!
