MOUNT VERNON — The Focus on Business advertisement previously published on Tuesdays in the Mount Vernon News, has finished its circulation cycle, according to News Advertising Manager Corby Wise.
“The advertisement, which included the contest, was designed to publish a specific number of weeks and has run its course,” said Wise.
In developing advertising strategies for customers and the yearly promotion schedule for the News, Wise said there is always the possibility that a new contest could be designed as part of a promotions package, especially since News readers are so receptive.
The weekly picture puzzle contest will also come to a close later this month with the final puzzle set to publish during the week of May 28.
“We continue to have a strong response to the contest and those that enter let us know how much fun they are having cutting out the pieces each day and identifying the photograph,” said Mike McNichols, News circulation manager.
McNichols said this contest was designed to encourage readers to read stories more closely and to give them a little something extra to do over the winter months.
