The newspaper distribution mess in Melbourne leaves Melbourne airport without papers til 7:30am …

Update (12:26): we’ve had customers coming in saying there was coverage on this topic on 3AW today, which surprises me given they are owned by Nine Media, one of the companies responsible for the mess.

    We in the aged care industry feel your pain – we can no longer get resident newspapers and magazines delivered. The simple things such as having your newspaper to read over breakfast is now a dogs breakfast as we have to have an individual subscription for each resident to the newspaper, which cannot be guaranteed to be delivered.

    SO it has been a few months since Lygon media shut down in the north of Melbourne. I and others have been trying to find someone to deliver the newspaper to my father who is in a nursing home in Brunswick (on the border with Essendon)…

    All he wants is to have the Age on a Wedensday and the Australian on a Saturday…

    I’m completely at a loss to work out who might do this now? The nursing home is only recieving the Herald Sun. They can’t seem to be able to get the Australian?

    Any advice would be appreciated. The nursing home is also at a loss…

    Will, the best thing for you to do is to contact each publisher direct as they control all deliveries now.

    Weekend Australian not delivered again. Impossible to speak to anyone to get problem fixed. Such poor customer service. I thought technology was supposed to make our lives better.
