Your Deal (defunct)

Your Deal was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the town of Deal, the neighbouring smaller town of Walmer and nearby villages in eastern Kent.

It was launched in 2009 as a companion to the Your Dover and Your Sandwich titles covering those two nearby towns, and was delivered direct to households and through a variety of pickup points. Both it and Your Sandwich were re-merged into Your Dover in November 2010, but resumed publication just two months later as digital-only publications, in common with the rest of the Your… series.

It was published by KOS Media, publishers of the Kent on Sunday and Kent on Saturday weeklies for the whole of the county of Kent. In June 2010 the Norwich-based Archant group acquired KOS Media outright, having had a minority shareholding since 2005.

The main editorial offices were in Smeeth near Ashford.

It came out on Wednesdays. The last issue was dated 1 September 2012, although the website was still being updated as of May 2013.
