Stopping newspaper delivery, either temporarily or permanently, involves notifying the newspaper's circulation department by phone or through the company's website. The "News & Observer" in Raleigh, NC illustrates clear examples of both methods.
On the homepage, click Full Menu at the left side of the red banner. Hover the cursor over Customer Service, then click Customer Service on the slide-out menu. Customers can call 800-522-4205 to request a temporary or permanent delivery change. The links under Home Delivery include Vacation delivery stop for placing a hold on delivery for a specified period of time. Other newspapers provide temporary and permanent delivery changes as well via their telephone numbers and websites.
