The latest change because of COVID-19….bargains and items for sale will temporarily move online.
The Peddler of Middle Tennessee will publish a new edition each Thursday on the site’s website.
“Delivering thousands and thousands of copies of the Peddler to a 16 county area would be reckless right now,” Publisher and Owner Tim Sneed said. “We feel like everybody needs to do what they can to hunker down.”
Sneed said once the pandemic passes, print publications will resume.
All of the Peddler’s employees have seen a decrease in hours with only one employee working from home. Sneed said he keeps his number on the front door of the office for any business needs.
“Right now, we are walking a tight rope between contractual obligations to customers and staying at home to slow the movement of the virus,” Sneed said.
The Peddler began in 1977 and provides Middle Tennessee with free weekly advertisements.
“We’ve been here for 43 years serving the community and bringing buyers and sellers together,” Sneed said. “That’s our slogan. That’s what we’ve always done and what we will continue to do.”
The Peddler covers Cannon, Clay, Coffee, Cumberland, DeKalb, Fentress, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Smith, Trousdale, Van Buren, Warren and White counties.
Publications include special sections for vehicles, real estate, farm equipment, auctions, pets and more. Visit https://www.thepeddlertn.com to subscribe for free.
