Free publications such as The Best Times, Memphis Flyer and 10 other publications in Memphis will not be available in Kroger stores after Oct. 15 under a nationwide ban.

Kroger has terminated its contract with DistribuTech, the company that distributed the free publications. Publishers of the free publications paid Kroger for the right to distribute their products in the stores.

Kroger said it was “removing the publication racks from our stores because more publications continue to shift to digital formats, resulting in less customers using these products.”

The Best Times is publishing in this edition a list of locations where the newsmagazine will be available after this month.

Updates will be added over the next few months as new locations become available.
