Because of rising business costs, Clovis News-Journal subscription rates will increase by 25 cents per month beginning Jan. 1.
The price of individual papers will remain 50 cents for weekdays and $1 for Sundays. Subscription rates still will provide a 44 percent savings, compared to “off-the-rack” prices, for those getting home delivery and a 24 percent to 34 percent savings for those getting the paper through the mail, said Circulation Director Lynn Berry.
Home delivery rates for the paper will go from $8.75 a month to $9 a month. However, those receiving home delivery will be eligible for a rate of $8.50 through the Autopay program, Berry said.
“With Autopay, we take the subscription price directly out of their bank accounts each month. If they come to the circulation office and fill out a form, we will send the form to their banks to set up the service,” Berry said.
To inquire about the Autopay program, call 763-7350, he said.
Mailing rates for the News-Journal will go from $10 to $10.25 inside the six-county area of Curry, Roosevelt, De Baca, Quay counties in New Mexico, and Bailey and Parmer counties in Texas, and from $11.25 to $11.50 for the rest of the country, Berry said.
Autopay will be available at the current rate for those receiving the paper through the mail, he added.
