that are picked up each Thursday at many of the
local businesses on the Southern Oregon Coast.
Return rate 2%: 98% of the South Coast
Shoppers are picked up each week by the public. Our distribution people
have kept track of the papers that are not picked up at each distribution
location and then adjusted the amount left at each location up or down
