Seven Trinity Mirror-owned weekly newspapers are changing their publication dates after research showed readers wanted them a day earlier.
The North Wales Weekly News hit the streets for the first time on Wednesday this week after previously being published each Thursday.
The Caernarfon Herald will be the last to make the switch next week.
A Trinity Mirror spokesman said: “We’ve moved seven of our weekly titles forward 24 hours to be on sale on a Wednesday instead of a Thursday.
“The idea behind the move is to squeeze in an extra day of sales. This mainly targets supermarkets – so shoppers who perhaps only frequent stores once a week on a Wednesday will have the chance to purchase the paper.”
The Weekly News informed readers of the change with an advert headlined ‘Wednesdays just got better….Thursdays are soooo last week!”
The paid-for newspaper, which marked its 125th birthday last year, told readers on its Facebook page that “research apparently shows people would like it a day earlier.”
The North Wales title was founded in 1889 by a local printer called Robert Evans Jones and was originally called the Weekly News and Visitors’ Chronicle.
It is based at the same offices as the North Wales Daily Post in Llandudno Junction.
