"Our local editors, journalists and support staff have been working around the clock to cover the stories and source relevant COVID-19 information appropriate to each community," says SPARK Media's CEO Gill Randall.

"Community news is known to command high levels of engagement among the hundreds of thousands of different South African population clusters, with new evidence pointing to the fact that our readers are now paying even higher levels of attention to printed products during these disastrous times," adds Randall.

"We know from our research that these shopping deals play an important part in helping us plan our shopping lists; there has never been a more important time than now to look for good deals and savings," Randall says.

"We're happy to be back in action and would like to take this opportunity to thank our media agencies and advertisers for their ongoing support as we continue to get stronger and stronger," Randall concludes.
