Chicago Newspapers Featuring Cubs World Series Win Sold Out Quickly at Newsstands Around Barrington

Home Newsroom Chicago Newspapers Featuring Cubs World Series Win Sold Out Quickly at Newsstands Around Barrington

Chicago papers flew off newsstands this morning, as Cubs fans scrambled to get the first newspaper in 108 years with “World Series Champions” emblazoned across the front page, the Tribune reports. Barrington area gas stations and grocery stores say shoppers were lined up and today’s papers were gone in minutes, right after they opened this morning.

We watched as people surrounded newsstands trying to get their hands on any remaining publications featuring Cubs World Series cover stories. I was right there with them, searching high and low, a little too late and out of luck. If only I had thought last night to hit the stores first thing this morning…

Finally, I hit the jackpot after I happened into the CVS on Northwest Highway in Palatine, just after a second newspaper delivery. I picked up copies of both the Chicago Tribune and Sun Times to put away in our kids’ keepsake boxes.

 

According to this report, The Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times, both printed at the Freedom Center in the Fulton River District neighborhood, added hundreds of thousands of copies to their normal circulation numbers. The Tribune normally prints about 300,000 copies, said Stew Erskine, product supervisor in the pressroom. Overnight Wednesday it printed an extra 400,000 copies, for a total press run of 700,000.

They’ll fire up the presses again Thursday afternoon to print a Cubs special section for the Tribune, set to go out with Friday’s paper. If you want to get your hands on a copy, be sure to hit the newsstands bright and early tomorrow morning. This week’s newspapers will be collectors items for years to come and make great gifts – framed – for the holidays!
