FAQ

Our office is at 194 Talbot Street East, Unit 2 in Leamington and we’re open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 4pm and Friday from 9am to 12pm.

The Sun comes out each Wednesday as is typically available to be picked up at our office by 9:30am. It is also delivered to stores and newspaper boxes in Leamington, Kingsville and Wheatley on Wednesday and to driveways in Leamington on Wednesday and Thursday. Our digital e-subscription email gets sent every Wednesday at 8am with a link to view the paper online.

The Sun gets printed at a large printing facility in Wyoming, Ontario. It used to be printed in Kingsville at the Kingsville Reporter facility and we also operated our own press in Leamington for a few years.

The newspaper goes to print every Tuesday morning.

To place a classified ad, you can call, email or visit our office. The cost is $20/week.

If you would like to place an advertisement in the Sun, please contact us at sales@southpointsun.ca or call 519-398-9098.

The cost of an advertisement depends on the size of the ad and whether you want it to run in colour or black and white. We also have frequency discounts if you want to run your ad on a consistent basis. Our advertising reps will gladly work with you to find an ad size that fits your budget.

If you would like to put an announcement in the paper (i.e. anniversary, birthday, birth, in memoriam) please call 519-398-9098, email [email protected] or visit our office at 194 Talbot Street East, Unit 2 in Leamington. We have three different sizes to choose from. You provide us with the wording and a photo to go with it, and we’ll put it together and send you a proof so you can see what it looks like before it goes in the paper. The cost varies from $50 to $75 depending on the announcement size. 

If you have an event coming up and are interested in having it covered in the Sun, please let us know the details and we will see if we have a reporter available to cover your event. While we wish we could cover every event, unfortunately there are often times that we are unable to attend events and should that happen, we may ask that you take a photo and send it in.

There are a few reasons we don’t focus on those types of stories. The first is that stories of that magnitude take a lot of time to produce with extensive research and interviews, and we simply do not have the resources to commit to more hard-hitting news. The second reason is that those types of stories are more commonly suitable to the 24-hour news cycle (i.e. radio, television, daily newspapers) rather than a weekly community newspaper. We like to think of ourselves primarily as the “good news” paper – your local source for mostly feel-good, human interest stories that you aren’t likely to find in other media outlets.

No problem! If you are going on vacation or simply want to stop the delivery of the paper and flyers at your house altogether, simply set us an email at [email protected] or call our office at 519-398-9098 and let us know your address so we can stop your delivery. 

If you are going on an extended vacation, we can simply stop your delivery and you can give us a call when you return home so we can start your delivery back up again.
