Penny Saver Shutters Sacramento Area Printer

After decades of deals, Penny Saver in Sacramento is done.

“We kind of sensed it with all the online stuff going on,” said employee  Jesse Morales. “It’s finally happened.”

Morales and his co-workers started getting pink slips last week- 60 day notices that their time with Penny Saver is over. Many of them have 10 or 20 years experience printing the frugal fliers.

“Yeah, we’re gonna miss it. What can you do? They made their decision,” Morales said.

By press time, Penny Saver management hadn’t responded to FOX40’s request for an interview.

There will still be a Penny Saver insert in some northern California papers. But they won’t be printed at the Rancho Cordova  plant. The plan is to print them in Southern California and ship them up.

In the Sacramento area, your Penny Saver is delivered mostly by mail. It looks like that won’t change. The only thing that will change is the person printing the thrifty pages.

And as for Jesse Morales, what’s next?

“Hit the job market,” he said.

    I just have to say, you guys mutilated this story. I work for The Pennysaver and you are not giving the public the proper information. You should do more research before releasing false information. Yes, it's true the facility is closing and hundreds of people are being laid off, but The Pennysaver will still be delivered the same way it has been for many years. It just won't be printed in Sacramento at this facility any longer. Get your facts straight next time!!
