Anchor announces subscription renewals and price changes

FALL RIVER, Mass. — The Anchor, the official Catholic newspaper of the Diocese of Fall River, has announced a few changes of which current subscribers should be made aware.

At the renewal date for each subscriber, the annual cost for The Anchor will become $25. This is the first rate increase for The Anchor in more than 10 years. While we realize it may be an extra burden to some, the $20 cost did not cover printing and mailing overheads. At the new rate, it still works out to costing subscribers less than $1 per issue, far less than most publications.

The Anchor is also offering its readers the option to renew for two years at $45 for 52 issues, a savings of $5.

The date on which The Anchor subscription will expire will now be listed in each edition above the name and address of the subscriber on the back page (page 24).

Subscribers are encouraged to renew their subscription by that date by sending a check or money order for $25 made payable to The Anchor, 887 Highland Avenue, Fall River, Mass. 02720. Subscribers may elect to purchase a two-year (52 issues) subscription at a reduced rate of $45.

Subscribers may also renew online by clicking HERE.

If a payment isn’t received within 30 days of the expiration date, The Anchor will send out one reminder notice.
