ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- It`s one of the most anticipated newspapers of the year in our area, the Thanksgiving edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. That`s because the paper is full of Thanksgiving and Black Friday insert ads.
A Post-Dispatch spokesperson says tomorrow`s paper will have 59 different inserts. It weighs more than four and a half pounds. Each insert is an ad for a different store. But retailers aren`t waiting until the Thanksgiving paper to get their ads out.
We`re told this morning`s edition of the Post includes up to 24 insert ads. So between today and tomorrow`s Post you could have more than 80 different ads for your shopping pleasure!
If you just can`t wait for your paper to come tomorrow morning, you can get an early thanksgiving edition of the Post with all 59 inserts starting today at noon at retail locations all around the St. Louis area- the cost is $4.
The process of getting the Thanksgiving edition of the Post ready has been going on for a couple of weeks.
In fact, to give you an idea of just busy Post-Dispatch workers have been getting all of the inserts ready, we`re told Post employees have assembled over 28 million inserts for the Thanksgiving day edition of the post, the Suburban Journal, and Local Value products.
