Beginning Thursday, April 2, due to the coronavirus crisis, The Barberton Herald will suspend the printed edition until at least April 30.
The online edition will remain the same including cops logs, news, views lines, About You Columns, games and more.
As with any printed newspapers, the advertisers are the backbone of the industry. Without advertisers, there would be no newspapers. At this time 80% of our advertisers have either temporarily closed or are on hold. So we will join with our many friends who have had to suspend their business operations until this crisis is over.
We also do not want to put our employees at risk. They work in close quarters, especially on production day, when employees come together as a group and label and insert over 6,000 newspapers.
For our subscribers, you are welcome to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to have your printed edition switched to the online edition at no charge.
The online edition is exactly as the printed edition with page turn, archives and more. Otherwise, we will automatically extend your printed subscription for the weeks missed.
During this time, please consider subscribing to the online edition and continue to visit our website and Facebook pages where we will post community information and updates on a daily basis.
Thank you for your continued support and we will be back up running soon.
