Through 105 years of change, the San Marcos Daily Record has continued to deliver for our readers in a city we are proud to call home. Though there have been tough times, we’ve pulled through and believe we continue to provide a major service to the community.
That said, we are asking those of you who pick up your Record at H-E-B or any of the more than 70 other locations to dig a little deeper into your pocket. Newsstand sales prices will increase by a quarter beginning Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017.
