STEUBENVILLE - SuperSaver, our weekly classified marketplace, is getting a new, easy-to-read format with expanded merchandising opportunities.
The changes, which take effect with the March 7 publication, will give SuperSaver "a whole new look."
"The advertising is going to expand to include just about all types of merchandise, and we're removing the monetary limit," said Denise Delatore, advertising director for the Herald-Star and The Weirton Daily Times, said. "Now, private parties can advertise items they would like to sell free of cost, regardless of the asking price. And we're going to a six-column format, which will be much easier for our readers to peruse. It will be much more reader-friendly."

The changes mean area residents will be able to advertise items which traditionally sold at prices higher than the publication's previous limit, such as used cars, Delatore added.
Once the changes are made, SuperSaver will no longer be included in our Friday edition. SuperSaver will be published every Thursday and will be available for convenient pickup at more than 100 area locations.
"We're always looking ways for ways to better serve our customers," said Alex Marshall, publisher of the newspapers. "Our readers have been asking about an expanded merchandise section in our SuperSaver, where they could offer more and better items for sale, and we're happy to be be able to give them what they've been asking for."
