Pet Society celebrates newspapers


Newspapers have suffered an 8.7% drop in circulation in recent months, but they're alive and well in Pet Society this week. At the pond, you can catch the newspaper fish with pretty much any type of bait, including the humble apple.

Come Monday, you'll see a fuller tribute to print at the shops where a large newspaper stand will be available. A cup of coffee and rolled-up paper will be sold in the Living section. These items are part of a larger retro-urban theme featuring cars and street signs that hark back to the 1950s, when bigger was better and the environment wasn't something to be saved. Before you get too excited by the cars, we have a sneaking suspicion that they will be glorified chairs (i.e. they won't move), but they might make stylish props for a vintage street scene.
