When shopping for a newspaper to publish a legal notice, the Turlock Journal, also known as the Ceres Courier, quoted me the price of $125 to publish the notice for four (4) consecutive weeks. When I submitted the legal notice to the contact person at the Turlock Journal/Ceres Courier, Judy Kenyon, my request was denied. I then went back to the courts in an effort to force the Turlock Journal/Ceres Courier to publish my notice, which the court backed. However, by the time I resubmitted the notice to Judy Kenyon at the Turlock Journal/Ceres Courier, I was told the price had essentially doubled to $300 at then end of the month of May. Judy Kenyon then had the NERVE to tell me it was still less than the Modesto Bee, as if that would make the crappy business of doubling the quoted price taste like sugar. This process has left me distraught as I constantly watched the pricing to ensure it aligned with what I reported to the court. When trying to verify updated information, nowhere could I find any indication the price had doubled. Additionally, I could not find any direct contact information for anyone other than Judy Kenyon such as a manager or supervisor. There is simply no one to contact to protest the huge price hike. I understand businesses retain prerogative to change prices but this practice feels more predatory than fair. It seems like the Turlock Journal/Ceres Courier is attempting to price-gouge when they think no one is able to hold them accountable. How can someone be taken to task if you do not know whom to take to task? Now we are stuck with returning to the courts to inform them the Turlock Journal/Ceres Courier is no longer a viable option due to their shady business practices and that this business clearly does not honor their own pricing quotes. I will go with another local circular as some of them are $200. Had I known I would receive the ol' bait n' switch from this business, I would have petitioned the court for one of the other Stanislaus county newspapers. Not a good look being greedy Turlock Journal/Ceres Courier!
