Publication of the Troy Pennysaver Plus will be suspended indefinitely at the end of this month, according to the president of its parent company headquartered at the Daily Review and the Towanda Printing Company. Kelly Luvison said the March 28 edition of the Troy Pennysaver Plus will be its last, but he did not rule out the possibility that it could return to print at some point.
Luvison said the growing pressures on all small-market shopper publications and the current economic climate contributed to the decision to stop printing the company’s Troy publication at this time. The Pennysaver had been struggling financially for the past few years and the lingering downturns related to COVID-19 have worsened that situation considerably.
“More than ever,” said Luvison, “we need to focus our resources on our publications that are successful.”
He added, “Overall, we have weathered the difficult conditions of 2020 and early 2021 fairly well. Our Daily & Sunday Review newspaper and website have strong readership and better support than ever in Troy and the surrounding areas, so we need to focus our energy and our good people where we can be successful for years to come.”
Longtime Pennysaver employee Mia Hodlofski will remain with the company full-time, representing the newspaper in western Bradford County from her office in Troy. Neither Hodlofski nor Luvison ruled out the possibility that the Pennysaver could be resurrected in some form or fashion in the future if local business conditions warrant it.
But Luvison also stressed that the health and popularity of the company’s daily newspaper provides the best assurance of continued news coverage and advertising value in the Troy area.
