CN&R’s first advertisers had faith in the paper

This paper has always been free to its readers, which means that its advertisers are its only customers. Without them, this journal of the life of Chico, as we once described it, would die tomorrow. Their confidence in its ability to reach readers and help their businesses prosper is what keeps it going.

Here are some of the local businesses that had enough faith in the CN&R to advertise in it regularly during its first year of operation. It gives us special pleasure to mention them because they too are still in business and serving the people of Chico.
