Thanksgiving Day editions, packed with holiday shopping ads, are reportedly the largest of the year for daily newspapers. The Nov. 22 edition of the Reno Gazette-Journal weighed 3.91 pounds.
If it were ground beef, it would have cost $9.73, according to Raley’s grocery prices on Monday of this week. If it were crab, it would have cost $19.51.
Although it was a weekday and although that particular edition was revenue-rich, the Gazette-Journal raised the price for it to $3. The normal weekday price is $1.
