Early bird editions on sale Wednesday

From staff reports

Readers of the Marietta Times can get a jump on planning their strategies for Black Friday sales coming up next weekend by purchasing the massive Thanksgiving Day edition a day early.

A limited number of copies, which will include Black Friday flyers from both The Marietta Times and the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, will go on sale Wednesday starting at 10 a.m. and continuing until the special edition is sold out, or until 5 p.m.

The paper will be available at The Times office, 700 Channel Lane, at the News and Sentinel off Juliana Street in Parkersburg and at Stacey’s Dance Studio at 205 Pike St. in Marietta. Readers will be able to find Stacey’s easily by looking for a big inflatable turkey on Pike Street. The cost of the early edition will be $5. To get the full content a day later, readers will have to pay $1.50 each for both The Times and the News and Sentinel.

“The Thanksgiving edition has become a holiday tradition with thousands of families in our region. This is why we are so excited about getting an early edition to the public on Wednesday,” said Joe Tranquill, director of circulation for the News and Sentinel and The Times.

“The package includes all the Marietta Times and Parkersburg News and Sentinel Thanksgiving flyers along with a lot of editorial content and in-paper advertising. The cost is only $5, and your savings will be enormous,” he said. “We only have a limited amount to be sold, so get to one of the three locations early while supplies last.

“We are very excited to be offering our customers a chance to get a jump on their Black Friday plans. Our Thanksgiving edition is packed with money-saving opportunities and is the must-have for Black Friday planning.”

Times subscribers will receive their Thanksgiving edition on Thursday but can come to one of the three sales locations on Wednesday to pick up the expanded early edition for $5.
