In response to COVID-19 and the ever changing information, we are offering a savings of $7 on a new one year subscription to the Alden Advertiser. It is our hope that the price reduction will allow those with reduced income, due to joblessness related to the closing of some businesses during the pandemic, the opportunity to stay informed on the virus and how local businesses and services will be impacted. The temporary rate will be $25.00 per year/51 issues.

To place your order, call 937-9226 between 8 am and noon, Monday thru Friday, or email us at
