Sun Live freebie newspaper non-delivery

Adrian from Papamoa Beach

Non-delivery of Sun-Live freebie newspaper.

I live in Dickson Road Papamoa Beach, and even before the Covid-19 lock-down I have noticed that the Friday afternoon delivery of the Tauranga weekly news paper Sun-Live is no longer delivered to my letter box. I wonder how widespread this is occurring, and why it is occurring.

There is an ethical issue attached to this problem: local advertisers who are charged considerable amounts to place advertisements in this paper will not have potential customers able to see their adverts. So the advertisers miss out on business, locals miss out on hearing what services and goods are available, but the paper still keeps its advertising revenue flowing in.

If the reason is that there are no delivery girls, boy, or retirees available to actual make the deliveries, then maybe Sun-Live could up the amount they offer to pay these potential deliverers.
