BDN carriers deliver more than 1 million newspapers in January

Despite the bitter cold, snowstorms, and several inches of ice in January, Bangor Daily News carriers delivered more than 1 million newspapers to local stores and front doors of our customers.

We want to thank each and every one of our exceptional carriers for making this happen.

The Bangor Daily News received letters and emails throughout the month from customers delighted with the service they have received during the terrible conditions.

Shirley, a subscriber from Ellsworth, was quoted as saying, “During these days of unbearable weather and hardship, the BDN has been in my green box every single day.  During my power outage it was my only contact with the daily news and storm reports.  Thanks to your paper and especially to the brave, tired people who deliver the paper–no matter how late they get it or how bad the roads are.”

The Bangor Daily News has taken great strides to make subscribing to the newspaper easier than ever. We have expanded home delivery areas and frequency options to fit the busy lives of Mainers.
