The Dispatch will begin charging for single copies of its Starkville edition beginning Oct. 16, Publisher Peter Imes announced.
Prices will be the same as the company charges for The Commercial Dispatch – 75 cents Monday through Friday and $1.25 on Sunday.
The Dispatch established an office in Starkville about 25 years ago and began printing a special edition, The Starkville Dispatch, in 2009. Single copies of that edition have been offered for free since its inception. Imes hopes readers will continue to support the product in the future.
“We appreciate the way the community has embraced our Starkville edition over the past 10-plus years,” Imes said. “Admittedly, that’s easy when it’s free! Our staff remains committed to providing the most complete news, sports and commentary for this community, and at 75 cents for a daily paper, I think newspapers in general are one of the best values available for folks who want to be engaged in their community.”
Home delivery also is available in Starkville and parts of Oktibbeha County. For more information, contact The Dispatch office at 662-328-2424 or online at cdispatch.com/subscribe.
