The free Mailbox Shopper and accompanying catalogues don’t accidentally appear in Dubbo letterboxes each week.
Their journey to homes across the city is orchestrated by E. Stanley Pamphlets Distributor, or more precisely Elaine Stanley.
On October 19 Mrs Stanley is permanently closing the doors of her workplace where she is regularly surrounded by two dozen pallets of newspapers and catalogues stacked as high as her chin.
They are collected and delivered by more than 50 people who along with clients of the business have been thanked by Mrs Stanley for their support.
Mrs Stanley started the business in 1988 and watched it gradually grow, along with her young family.
The businesswoman has enjoyed meeting “a wide variety of business people and deliverers over the years” but won’t miss the hectic pace of her work before and after Christmas.
“It will be really nice to have it off,” she said.
David Linton will begin distributing the Mailbox Shopper from the week starting October 22.
