The Anniston Star will raise its monthly subscription rates starting Tuesday, something necessary to make up for increased distribution costs, a company executive said Friday.

The change will bring the cost of a monthly subscription up to $13.50.

Dennis Dunn, The Star’s operations manager, said 40 percent of the extra revenue brought from the increase will go to the people delivering newspapers.

According to Dunn, the company last increased its rate in August 2008. He said the added costs associated with gasoline and car maintenance have increased significantly since that time.

Administrators with the newspaper have also dealt with increased costs for production materials.

Dunn added that The Star recently started carrying three new coupon books, and savings from those products will more than make up for the increase in price.

Prices for individual copies of the newspaper will remain the same, at $1.50 for Sunday and 75 cents for the other five days of the week print editions are published.

Dunn said the rest of Consolidated Publishing’s newspapers will keep their current subscription rates.
