Letter: Hey Kamloops, take a flyer on these companies

I encourage KTW readers to join me in supporting grocery stores that continue to publish weekly flyers as this strengthens our community

Editor:

A thriving local press strengthens community by keeping us all informed and connected.

I was disheartened to see Save-On-Foods has followed the lead of Real Canadian Superstore and is no longer publishing a weekly grocery flyer in print editions of KTW.

Publishing weekly flyers in the local paper is one way large corporations demonstrate their care for the communities in which they make their large profits.

The revenue generated by weekly adverts is vital to the operational sustainability of local newspapers.

Choosing not to publish grocery flyers also disadvantages shoppers who don’t have the technology to access digital flyers and shop for best deals.

I encourage KTW readers to join me in supporting grocery stores that continue to publish weekly flyers as this strengthens our community.

Vote with your wallet next time you make a run to your local grocery store by shopping at Safeway, Freshco, Fresh Street Market, Nu Leaf Produce, M&M Meats, Cain’s your Independent Grocer and other businesses that continue to support the local press.
