And so, at long last, is the price we charge for Locus Magazine. For more than 12 years, we’ve held our price for Locus steady at $8.95 (with a brief drop during the heady-but-weird period the Canadian dollar soared above the US dollar). But we can no longer hold that line.
The Canadian dollar has been straggling for a while now. And despite what a certain online retail giant would have you believe, shipping is not free. In fact, it’s damned expensive. Which puts us in the unenviable position of having to raise our price for Locus up to $9.95. Same great magazine: now only a buck more.
Not the most cheerful of slogans, perhaps, but honest.
