We had another mini-update. So far I've only noticed that the 2x rewards for the paper boy are gone. It's a bummer, I wish they had left it for the whole update like last year.
I’m not sure whether this is new or whether I’ve just never noticed (as I usually dismiss them) but the paper boy at my police station had the workplace symbol in his bubble and gave resources rather than furniture.
Like you I usually dismiss the paperboy, too. But this is pretty cool! Maybe someone else who watches the ads more often knows if this is new or not.

A few weeks back I have noticed the Blue Oyster Bar has disappeared from the home store. Do you know when this happened?
I had not noticed the Blue Oyster Bar was even missing! That is strange. Do you think it happened with the Holiday update?
I wasn‘t sure, so I searched my screenshots - the first one is from october 19th already :o

Regarding the paperboy
A member of the German forum pointed out yesterday that the bubble changes between normal and resources. Possible rewards were resources (except the last one), coins and the usual stuff. This was at the hospital and on an android device. When I watched out for the paperboy at the movie studio on my iPad, the bubble was like always as well as the possible rewards :?

Are those brand new outfits, or have they been available before as a prize or in the store?

Hopefully it's a mistake that the oyster bar is missing!

I got tired of waiting to see if the paperboy would show up at a profession place so I left my game for the night with a teen at the police station. When I opened the game this afternoon the paper boy was at the police station and it was indeed showing resources! I got 160 coins and 1 donut and 1SP from watching the ads.

Is this new, then? If it was just recently noticed here and on the German forum?

Yes, this is new.

I had a sim at the movie studio today. The paperboy did show up like everywhere else - no flashing icon and after watching a video, I saw the same rewards like always. I‘ll watch out for him at the police station tomorrow.

The Snow Chalet has different grids in build mode and home store - one for building a house and patios, a wider one for placing furniture, decoration and plants.
