Finding ads should be like Easter. GO outside and look around in small nooks and crannies now that would be fun.

I was surprised when I walked into my local Walmart and Target stores today and there wasn't a "after thanksgiving" flyer in sight. The past 3 years I managed to walk into the stores and pick one up, this year I've had to rely on the store websites (and of course BFADS.NET).

I don't subscribe to any newspapers, but I did check at the convenience store and there weren't any BF Ads in yesterday's or today's local papers.

I guess this was an official "welcome to the digital age" message. 8)

Plus I'm sure they save a miniscule amount of money reducing the amount of ads printed and increased traffic towards their website. Corporate bastards! :twisted:

Where I live in rural Virginia you need to buy a Wednesday paper to get the giant pile of ads...they don't seem to come in the Thanksgiving Thursday paper like they used to or probably still do in the larger cities.

That's sucks :(, but on a positive note, you have them on Wed.

Yeah but BFAds has most of the big national chain store ads well before Wed so I can scout here then decide if it's worth the $$$ to even buy the Wednesday paper.

Even sadder is the paper itself weighs only 1/5 as much as the ads do (which is why I don't buy the paper).

With the exception of Black Friday for the people who want the physical ad, newspaper is dead. It's been dying out since the late 90's/ early 00's.
