On Monday, May 6, the Brandon Sun will harmonize its home delivery within the city of Brandon, moving from an afternoon paper to a morning product.

"Morning delivery will benefit our readers and advertisers alike," publisher Eric Lawson said.

"Our readers will be able to enjoy local news and views earlier in the day. For our advertisers, morning delivery will ensure even greater exposure for their messages."

Newspapers will be delivered by mid-morning or earlier, depending on the length of the route and barring any extremely poor weather.

There are no planned changes to regular subscription rates for normal home delivery — except that delivery will now happen in the mornings.

Lawson said the time required to transport newspapers to rural areas will preclude the Sun from offering full morning delivery outside of the city.

"We will, however, continue to provide quality home delivery service to our many valued rural subscribers," said Lawson.

The Brandon Sun is one of the best-read newspapers in Canada, Lawson said. The most recent readership figures provided by NADbank (the Newspaper Audience Databank, which surveys readership for newspapers across Canada) show that 89 per cent of adults 18 and older in Brandon read the Sun each week.

we get early morning delivery now. Will our rate be changed to reflect the new change

Yes, a VERY SMART move for businesses who advertise in the Brandon Sun and for customers alike!

FINALLY!

Thank you Brandon Sun and whomever came up with this suggestion.

Bravo!

I received my paper this morning already and I went out to thank my adult paper carrier for this service.

Nice, indeed!

The Vancouver Sun promises to have their paper in people's mailboxes by 7:00 am.

I like the fact that the paper will be delivered early morning by adults. There has been times in the past we have waited past five o'clock and then not received a paper at all! For the management to finally be caring enough to make sure their product is delivered in good time for the people that pay is greatly appreciated! A good business decision Brandon Sun!
