We know there is a lot of preparation going on in your household as you plan your travel, organize the annual Thanksgiving feast and move into the holiday season.
We too have been preparing for the big day at The World and will be kicking the holidays off with the biggest newspaper of the year and I'm excited to be a part of it as the new executive editor.
Thursday's Thanksgiving edition of The World will be packed with Black Friday deals from local and national businesses.
Here's what you can expect: 17 inserts featuring local and regional specials, plus coupons and special offers you can't find anywhere else.
And you still get all the local and national news and sports coverage packed inside. Check out the Education section for photos of this year's Thanksgiving Coloring Contest winners.
We're proud to be part of your holiday shopping tradition. Sixty-three percent of American adults list newspapers as the ultimate holiday shopping guide — and the most effective way to learn about Black Friday deals, according to a Nielsen study.
We're also again organizing our ThanksGIVEaway gift card giveaway. We'll be awarding three $100 Visa gift cards to local readers who enter. One lucky reader in the markets served by The World's owner, Lee Enterprises Inc., will win $5,000.
Enter by finding the ad for our ThanksGIVEaway contest in the Thursday, Nov. 28, edition of The World, available Wednesday afternoon in stories and news racks, or delivered to your home if you're a subscriber. There you’ll find a special website address where you can enter. That’s only in Thursday’s World.
To subscribe to The World or to manage your subscription, call 541-266-6055 or visit theworldlink.com/subscribenow/. We're offering a great early Black Friday deal for our digital plus edition at $5 for 5 months. It includes unlimited articles on theworldlink.com with no surveys, the e-edition replica of the newspaper and free access to Newspaperscom archives of the last two years. That's a 90 percent discount for 20 weeks and you can cancel any time.
Thanks for reading throughout the year. And happy holidays!
