To our Champlin and Dayton readers:

You are seeing some changes today in your Champlin-Dayton Press.

First of all, you are seeing a redesigned newspaper. All of your local content is still here – city government, high school sports, local news and features, but we’re bringing you a new, fresh look.

Secondly, your newspaper is now arriving at your home via carrier instead of in the U.S. Mail. You will also notice that the Anoka County Shopper is stuffed inside. Both the Champlin-Dayton Press and the Anoka County Shopper are products of ECM Publishers. We have decided to join forces and have our carriers deliver both products to you every Thursday.

We feel these are very positive changes that will strengthen our community publications, and allow us to continue to bring you the local news for many years to come.

Should you have any questions about this transition, please call our circulation/delivery department at 763-424-7370.
