Several months ago the Nob Hill Gazette started delivering to Noe Valley. I see the papers, wrapped in plastic, strewn all over the sidewalks. To me it's clear that most of us don't care to read the paper and they just deliver it to increase their circulation numbers. I've asked them a number of times to at least stop delivering to me, but that doesn't seem to work. I'm tired of the mess and dealing with a newspaper that I never asked to receive. Today I emailed them once again, and CCed Bevan Dufty.Haven't noticed it around here, but we'll take your word for it. The NHG describes itself as having "a controlled circulation of 80,000 copies every month" that "caters to an audience upscale in taste and lifestyle." Then why is it piling on Noe doorsteps?
The same could actually be said of the Examiner, but at least they stopped delivery to my home when I asked. [Ed.--this editor had to ask 4 times.]
Am I crazy? Is this bothering anyone else?
Readers are young and old, male and female, savvy and sophisticated. They have discretionary income to spend on homes, cars, clothes, jewelry, furniture, art, travel, and related luxury items. Even more important, they care about the community, and make time to support and sponsor cultural, philanthropic and charitable events — all year ’round.Maybe. But apparently Noe neighbors don't want to read it.
