I don't get our local newspaper delivered. My mailbox is down at the foot of the mountain and that's where they would put the newspaper box. So I would have to go down to get it or wait until I leave for work .I stop at a Sheetz convenient store every morning before work and buy it so I know it will be dry. The newspaper boxes are open on the front.
It cost 50 cents through the week and the weekend paper is $1.25. I believe that's a fair price. They rely heavily on advertising to help cover costs.
