In Snowmageddon’s wake, just how many Sunday Star Tribune and Pioneer Press subscribers got their papers on Sunday?
According to Pioneer Press, 93.5 percent. For the Star Tribune, 98 percent.
Strib circulation V.P. Cindy Doege calls her fleet’s effort “heroic” and says the gaps were mostly in poorly plowed areas of Minneapolis and some outlying areas such as New Prague. North and Southwest Minneapolis were particularly tricky, as were neighborhoods near the airport and into Richfield.
Pioneer Press spokeswoman Pat Effenberger says remaining subscribers are getting their papers today; the same is true for the Strib, notes Doege. In many cases, distribution agents concentrated on getting the Monday papers out this morning, and are circling back to fill in the Sunday gaps.
Doege says even if you get your Sunday paper a day late, the paper will give you a credit if you ask.
