Price increase for local papers across the UK

1 Mins read

Popular newspaper owned by the Alpha Group ( Coleraine Chronicle )  only costs £1.20.

The price of local papers across Northern Ireland looks to be on the rise at the moment with Johnston Press, the owner of the majority of newspapers across the province.

Papers owned by Johnston Press include many local, weekly publications such as the Coleraine Times, Ballymoney Times and Londonderry Sentinel, alongside larger publications such as The Newsletter

However, while most publications seem to have undergone a rise of 5p, the price of the Coleraine Times has risen by 10p, from £1.40, to £1.50.

When approached by Hold The Front Page, the company refused to confirm whether the price rise would be group wide, however it does appear to be the case, with the prices of Johnston Press owned papers rising right across the UK.

The editor of Lancashire Paper, The Star, told Hold The Front Page that the reason for this rise was due to the fall in revenue generated from in-paper advertising.

Back in early 2015  we made a request to the Newsletter which shows the following figures below on a weekly basis in late 2014.

Coleraine Times – 1792 copies
Ballymoney Times – 3106 copies
Ballymena Times – 2233 copies
Antrim Times – 644 copies
