The Hometown Weekly Newspapers began publishing in 1997 with a goal to bring community information to every home and business in our towns. The Hometown Weekly was mailed to over 12,500 homes and businesses in Medfield, Dover and Westwood each Thursday. In 2003, Walpole Hometown Monthly was launched, providing the same quality service for every home and business in Walpole. Since then, the Hometown Weekly Newspaper has expanded into towns of Sherborn, Needham and most recently, Wellesley. Today the Hometown Weekly Newspaper is delivered to over 47,000 homes and business each and every week.
Each issue features stories by local writers along with valuable information from many of your town’s organizations, community leaders and businesses. Members of the community are encouraged to submit information about their activities, weddings, anniversaries and student news. We make every attempt to publish as much community related information as possible.
Advertisers depend on the Hometown Weekly to carry their message to every home in the community. Because of its unique circulation, businesses have achieved outstanding results in generating new business through advertising in the Hometown Weekly. The ads created by our professional graphics department can make even the smallest store look like they have the services of a top ad agency. The Hometown Weekly also offers the opportunity for inserts, which can get an advertiser's flier into every home at a very reasonable cost.
