I wanted to update everyone on store availability this year for the 2013 Mississippi Gridiron annual, and explain why it has taken an extra week. The company we had to go through last year to distribute the magazine to stores such as Walmart is no longer doing business in our state. A new wholesale company took over Mississippi in the last few months and we’ve been waiting on all the details to be finalized. Those type of factors are obviously well above my head.
Even though it took a little longer than we hoped, we were blessed that it was finished this week so we can get magazines out before the season. We’ll be one of the first publications the new wholesaler puts in Mississippi stores. I dropped off magazines yesterday, August 9, and they should begin showing up around the state through this next week at Walmart, Kroger and Books-A-Million. We have also changed the cover to only put out one this year to simplify distribution.
I’d like to give definite details on store dates, but they’ll show up as soon as they are able to be distributed. I don’t have any control over that part of the process after I have delivered them. If you order online, I can have that shipped out the same day and have it to you in 2-3 business days.
Thanks for your patience. You can order by clicking here.
