New York Times daily delivery to Eastern Iowa halted
National newspaper says distributor shifted to Sunday only
The global supply chain challenges that are hampering shipments of a growing number of items now include delivery of the New York Times newspaper to home and business subscribers and to newsstands at grocery stores and bookstores in Eastern Iowa.
The newspaper was cut back to Sunday-only for delivery earlier this year.
“Our independent distributor for the eastern part of Iowa (Iowa City and Cedar Rapids) stopped distributing Monday through Saturday, moving to Sunday-only delivery in early January of this year,” Danielle Rhoades Ha, communications vice president, wrote in an email to The Gazette late Friday.
Rhoades Ha said the national newspaper is working to restart seven-day delivery in this market, "but I have no timeline to share at the moment.“
Mail subscriptions remain available, she said.
The newspaper still is delivered seven days a week in Des Moines, she added.
Limited numbers of the Sunday Times could be found at a few stores in the Corridor yesterday.
The edition delivered to Eastern Iowa is printed in Chicago.
