To ensure timely delivery of each week’s newspaper after problems caused by changes in the U.S. Postal Service’s distribution system, Lancaster Farming has enlisted the help of other newspapers to switch many of its subscribers to direct delivery by those newspapers’ carriers.
Instead of appearing in their mailboxes, Lancaster Farming will be arriving in those customers’ driveways between 6 and 8 a.m. Saturday.
Subscribers who have been switched to the new delivery system who fail to receive their newspaper one morning can arrange for same-day delivery by calling 717-291-8611 by 10 a.m.
Subscribers who no longer have a mailing label on their newspapers because of the change can continue to place free mailbox market ads by providing an account number and address in lieu of a label on the submission form.
Areas that are already receiving the alternative delivery of Lancaster Farming include most of Lancaster, Chester, Montgomery, Bucks, Delaware and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania; Washington, Frederick, Carroll, Baltimore, Harford and Anne Arundel counties in Maryland; and Cape May, Cumberland, Salem, Gloucester, Camden, Burlington, Atlantic and Ocean counties in New Jersey.
About 20,000 of the nearly 58,000 subscribers to Lancaster Farming have been switched to the new delivery system, and negotiations with other newspapers to switch even more subscribers are continuing.
For more information about the change or to verify account numbers, subscribers should call Lancaster Farming’s circulation department at 717-721-4412.
