The Mower County Shopper began in 1964, when an Austin resident and local merchants believed that Austin's trade area should be enlarged to enhance the continued growth of the town. The circulation of 5,000 copies were mailed to rural areas of South Central Minnesota and North Central Iowa.
The circulation has steadily increased, currently reaching over 18,000 homes.We publish only a Tuesday Shopper.
In September of 1995, the Mower County Shopper was bought by Boone Newspapers, Inc. The Mower County Shopper is in the process of growing again!
The Mower County Shopper includes many inserts from retailers all over our area and is the only FREE shopping publication delivered to over 19,000 homes in Austin and the surrounding communities.
