Special News Announcement to Houston READERS

Sad news today!

Thank you readers for your emails and sadly I found this out myself just after noon today.

The 99c only store and the Houston Chronicle right now cannot come to an agreement on pricing
From rumors:
99c only would still like to sell the Sunday Houston Chronicle for $1 but the Houston Chronicle wants them to sell it for $2.
If/when they can come to an agreement, we will have cheap papers again, until then it looks like the $2 is going to be the new reality.

Note: I did go to CVS today and the Saturday early edition rang in at $1.75. Not sure if this is typical, or will remain, but as of today, the Saturday early edition(with ALL Sunday coupon inserts) was $1.75 at CVS.

Local readers: Please feel free to post in comments where you are able to get the Saturday early edition or Sunday paper cheaper than $2!

*Please read the comments section. Reports are 45/610 area seems to still have $1 papers at 99c only store. (thanks gradstudentwife)

I've found that almost every week the Baytown Sun has the exact same inserts as the Chronicle and it's only $1.50. Thier weekend edition, with the coupons, is out on Saturday. I'm not sure if other "local" papers would be the same.

The 99 cent store in Conroe off 45/N336 still has them for a dollar as of 1/2/09. HTH someone!

No papers at the Jones Rd./1960 99 cent store and none at the 249 (near beltway) store. I knew something was wrong and came home to check your blog and sure enough you had the answer. Thanks for always being on top of things.
