The price is being increased from 20 cents per copy. In making the announcement Dwelle noted that, "Over 80 percent of the single sales of newspapers in the U.S. today is 25 cents or more. Besides helping us meet some of our increased costs and allowing more profit to our carriers, we think that this will actually simplify the purchase for customers who too often do not have the exact 20 cents in change." The increase will also affect single sales of the Athens Daily Review, Cedar Creek Pilot and the Athens Weekly Review. Home subscription rates will not be affected. In order to change the 100 racks, work will begin in late April so ~that~ all changes can be completed by May 1.
