The Shopper is consistent and published once a week, every Thursday, since 1982. We are distributed across four coastal Oregon counties: Coos, Curry, Western Lane, and Western Douglas. Our latest circulation audit has confirmed our circulation of 18,000 a week and has done readership studies to find that 2.2 people read each Shopper, which means approx 40,000 people on the Southern Oregon Coast read the Shopper every week. Our audit also found that people will still hold on to their Shoppers for a couple of weeks so they can refer back to it for a specific ad from a private party or business.
Generations have grown up with the Shopper, some consider picking it up every Thursday a local tradition and we have heard many amusing anecdotes about how displeased people can get if they don't get their Shopper first thing Thursday. That is how dedicated our readership is!
