Village News Reaches 20th Season Milestone!
Village News celebrates its 20th season of business in 2012. Started in an oceanfront bungalow summer rental cottage in 1993, several friends have nurtured the concept of having the newspaper delivered to vacationers’ doorsteps over the past twenty years.
Village News offers the following papers: USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Richmond Times-Dispatch, The Virginian-Pilot, Daily Press, and Outer Banks Sentinel. Vacationers receive flyers in their check-in packets and can order from home or when they arrive on the beach.
Gibson is proud of the personalized “on-the-porch” service Village News offers and the repeat customers the company has. The same Vacationers have been ordering for years and make it the first thing they do when they arrive on the Outer Banks.
“With many of our customers we have become to know them by name,” Gibson says. But more than anything on its 20th-season anniversary, Gibson would like realtors and new and repeat vacationers to keep in mind: “Newspaper delivery from Village News saves valuable vacationing time!”
