Do the ads come in the Wednesday or the Thanksgiving paper?

Postby PlutoIsTheBest » Thu Nov 08, 2012 12:21 pm

I normally only buy the Sunday paper so I can get the coupons, but I can't remember what day the BF ads come in the paper!

They usually come in Thursday's paper. It seems like I have seen a few in the past come earlier, but the vast majority come on Thursday. We too only get the Sunday paper and in the past I have gone out to buy a paper on Thanksgiving morning only to find a Thanksgiving day paper in my box. I think some places deliver papers on this day to every subscriber even if they usually only receive the Sunday edition, at least in my area:)

This. There are some in the Wed. paper, though. Especially the T-Day ads.

Yep, I'm on board with what everyone else said. You may see some Thanksgiving sale ads in the Wednesday paper but most ads will come in the Thursday paper. The one day of the year we buy a paper. ;)

Thanksgiving's the big day to stockpile Black Friday sale ads. When I go to Meijer in the morning for my annual "buy 1 pair, get 1 pair for $1" shoe sale, I stop at the Shell station there to get the Sandusky-area papers, then stop at the Marathon by the local Super Kmart to get the Lorain-area papers before hitting Super K for any last-minute needs. I wind up with six newspapers and a TON of advertisements. I don't think there's one that I *don't* wind up with at least one of every year!

Here in the past the small local paper will have some on Wednesday but the majority come out in the Thursday paper which now that stores are opening on Thanksgiving seems like by the time you get the ads on Thursday morning and see what you want it's already to late to go camp out because people lineup up early Thanksgiving morning for the early thanksgiving night openings.

No Thanksgiving Day paper here, so we get our ads on Wednesday. For once I am thankful to live in the middle of nowhere. :)

Do any Black Friday ads ever come with the Sunday newspaper? I've always been curious about this.

With so many stores now opening Thursday evening and even early Thursday morning, I expect that we'll see more ads in the Wednesday newspaper.
