Thanksgiving Tribune available day early

WARREN — Thanks to COVID-19, many, many things will be different in the way we celebrate the Thanksgiving Day holiday this year.

But at least one holiday tradition started a few years ago by the Tribune Chronicle will remain the same.

Again, this year, the Tribune Chronicle’s Thanksgiving Day edition will be hitting newsstands one day early, packed with all the local deals that will be available in time for Black Friday holiday shopping.

“We know the Thanksgiving edition of the Tribune Chronicle is a holiday tradition for readers who are getting ready to hit area retailers,” Tribune Chronicle General Manager Ted Snyder said.

The Black Friday deals listed in advertisements and sales fliers make the Thanksgiving edition of the Tribune Chronicle the biggest newspaper of the year.

To make sure readers have enough time to digest all the deals — along with their Thanksgiving dinner — and to map out their Christmas holiday shopping plans, the Tribune Chronicle Thanksgiving Day edition will be available early again this year beginning Wednesday afternoon, chock full of all the holiday sales fliers.

“The Thanksgiving edition is our largest newspaper of the year, with 18 sales fliers and inserts being stuffed into it,” Snyder said.

The Thanksgiving Day early bird edition newspaper will be available after 2 p.m. Wednesday at limited retail locations throughout the area.

Of course, it also will be delivered to all home subscribers early Thursday morning and will be available at more than 175 local retail locations again Thursday morning.

Retailers and advertisers who are scheduled to include inserts in this year’s early bird and Thursday Thanksgiving Tribune Chronicle edition are: Best Buy; Big Lots; CVS Pharmacy; GameStop; Home Depot; JCPenney; Kohl’s; Loves Furniture; Lowe’s; Macy’s; Mattress Firm; Menards; Michaels; Dollar General Market; Ollie’s Bargain Outlet; Rite Aid; and Shoe Carnival. Plus, the newspaper’s pages also will be packed with additional display advertisements.

Snyder suggests subscribing to the Tribune Chronicle in order to get your hands on all the fliers without having to leave your house on Thanksgiving Day or risk missing out if this high-demand edition of the newspaper is sold out early.

“The best way to be guaranteed a copy of the Thanksgiving edition is to be a home subscriber, but if not, look for it at your favorite retail location,” Snyder said, adding that due to the popularity of the annual Thanksgiving edition, the Tribune Chronicle has increased the number of copies available, and staff will be actively restocking at retail locations.
