We salute our readers, advertisers

A newspaper like today’s comes along only once every four years — it has Feb. 29 as its date.

In an effort to take advantage of an “extra” day in 2020, we asked area advertisers to help us make this edition an extra special vehicle to promote their businesses to our readers.

Twenty area businesses took advantage of special pricing to present themselves to the Tribune Chronicle’s 40,000 readers with an ad published each day during the leap month of February.

Today, those 20 advertisers have provided half-pages of advertising to further acquaint you with their products and services.

We salute these businesses, their owners, managers and employees who strive every day to meet the needs of their customers and who offer real value in their products and services. Their operations significantly contribute to the economy of this region by providing employment opportunities and services to its residents.

While we realize we don’t do it often enough, we encourage our loyal readers to patronize and support the businesses who use the pages of the Tribune Chronicle to advertise their goods. The money you spend with our advertisers provides the return on investment these businesses expect when they buy space in the Tribune Chronicle. For more than 200 years, this local newspaper has provided a valuable advertising product that produces results and return on investment to commercial enterprises of all types.

The advertising dollars contribute significantly to paying the costs of producing more than a half million Tribune Chronicle newspapers each month.

Writing, editing, printing and delivering a daily newspaper is an expensive operation. As many communities, even cities, across the country are learning, only newspapers with loyal readers and advertisers are able to survive in the highly competitive media space.

Today we are happy to salute our loyal readers and advertisers.
