Over the last week many of London’s commuters have changed the way they work and had to give up their daily journeys to the office in support of preventing the spread of coronavirus.
Today The Evening Standard announced the great news that after their 193 year history of serving the capital, they will now be delivering their newspapers direct to homes across parts of Zones 2 and 3.
This will give readers who now work from home, the chance to continue receiving a copy of the paper that is an important part of their daily routines.
“Given the changed dynamics of where our readers now are, we have been working hard on a unique new service for Londoners which will allow the Standard to still reach the commuters who normally would have been picking up their copies in Zone One but who are now working from home.” Mike Soutar, CEO The Evening Standard.
Initially the home delivery service will be focused on 26 residential neighbourhoods including Camden, Hampstead, Brixton, Greenwich and Shoreditch.
Their priority is to get at least 500,000 copies of the Standard to their loyal readers every day so they can carry on accessing their leading coverage of the unfolding coronavirus crisis.
