STORM LAKE, Iowa (KTIV) -

The Storm Lake Times might benefit from the elimination of Saturday postal service.

The paper is printed twice weekly, Tuesday and Friday. It's then available Wednesday and Saturday to customers.

When the USPS eliminates Saturday deliveries, officials at the Times say they'll push back printing one day, and have the paper ready Friday.

Officials say having it delivered a day earlier could encourage more advertising from retailers announcing weekend sales.

"Maybe businesses that want to start some sales on Saturday, maybe even Friday, they'll get enough extra days to advertise in the times," said Publisher John Cullen.

The Storm Lake Times is the largest newspaper in Buena Vista County. They have a circulation of about 3,200.
