A note to our readers: We have been getting a large number of calls this morning about the reduced number of grocery store advertisements listing weekly specials and deals in today’s print edition of the Journal-World.

Please know that we understand how much you value that information from local grocery stores as you plan your week. While two of our regular grocery customers — Checkers and Aldi — did run grocery store ads in Wednesday’s edition, our other regular grocery advertisers suspended their advertisements while they adjust to new challenges related to COVID-19. We expect this suspension to be temporary, and we are working hard to get those advertisers back on their regular schedules, as we understand that in these times it is more critical than ever that consumers have access to good information as they make their shopping decisions.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter, and please know that the Journal-World is committed to serving your information needs throughout this pandemic and beyond.
