JOPLIN, Mo. – Customers of the Joplin Globe newspaper will be seeing changes to home delivery. That’s according to a letter from paper carriers to customers.
Paper carriers wrote the letter, getting in touch with customers about the change.
The letter stated in part, “October 30th, 2021 will be your last home delivery. The Joplin Globe will be making a change, they will do away will all paper carriers and will start delivering your papers to you by the United States Postal Service starting November 2nd, 2021.”
The paper carriers expressed that it had been a pleasure delivering papers and wished folks happy holidays. They also shared hope that the delivery service will be the same great service they provided.
The US Postal Service has announced changes to its handling of periodicals, which are detailed in the above noted article and which are designed to improve delivery time apparently.
The USPS has been delivering newspapers in parts of the US for many years. I thought it was interesting seeing a local paper make this move, especially in the middle of a pandemic.
