Washington Post to Print Commemorative Edition of Today's Paper
Updated 6:54 p.m.
By Garance Franke-Ruta
A line formed outside The Washington Post's 15th Street headquarters this morning as area residents eagerly sought to find a copy of the paper announcing Barack Obama's historic presidential win last night.
The paper had increased copies available for sale at retail locations and in newsboxes by 30 percent, but the edition sold out within hours.
In answer to that public demand, The Post will produce
150,000 250,000 350,000 copies of a commemorative edition of today's paper, which will be available at select local retailers this afternoon. The newspapers, which will cost $1.50 each, will be available at some CVS, Giant Food, Harris Teeter, Safeway, Shoppers Food and 7-11 locations.
A limited number of commemorative editions will also be available late this afternoon at the front desk of The Washington Post, at 1150 15th Street NW in downtown Washington.
