Of course, we strive to maintain these guidelines as much as possible, however, there are always extenuating circumstances, such as inclement weather, that might cause your newspaper delivery to be delayed.

Your expected start date will be shown on the confirmation screen after you place an order. If you have any questions about your start date, or if your newspaper subscription does not begin as scheduled on the first day, please contact the The Mercury News, so that we can send a reminder notification to the delivery carrier in your area.
