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
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)
