Just found this while cleaning some old boxes at mums place. This was the montly collection book for Vancouver Sun paper boys! My first opportunity to make some cash lol. Every month you would knock on your customer door, collect the $8.50 for the monthly subscription and hope they pay you with a 10 and let you keep the change! As a kid you really learned alot about customer service, commitment ( sucked delivering on those rainy days) and motivation ( they would reward us if we were able to sign up new subscribers or convert weekend only folks to full weekly subscribers) I had a good run with the Vancouver Sun, had multiple paper routes , won new bikes and trips and then became " Shack Manager " for a few spots! Good ole days!
Do any of you remember the Vancouver Sun paper route days? Who had a paper route?
