What You'll Get
For a low-cost material to wrap friends' birthday gifts, an old newspaper is second only to a crispy layer of breadcrumbs. Unwrap the day's events and trim presents the oven-free way with today's Groupon: for $20, you get 26 weeks of Thursday and Sunday home delivery of The Record (a $52 value).
With a daily circulation of more than 150,000, the family-owned broadsheet The Record has won the New Jersey Press Association's General Excellence Award as the state's best large daily paper for three years in a row. Over more than eight decades, The Record has delivered local news, sports and arts coverage, coupons and discounts from area retailers, and delightfully ink-stained fingers to the well-informed locals.
The paper's intrepid reporters have broken such stories as Governor McGreevey's scandalous affair and the Meadowlands Swamp Thing's mail-fraud scheme. The Record's print version was the first to publish the now-famous photograph Ground Zero Spirit depicting firefighters raising an American flag after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, an image that was subsequently made into a stamp. Satisfied subscribers may chose to graduate to seven-day delivery, which also comes with a complete e-version of the daily paper.
