Prince George’s Suite Now Available at Barnes & Noble, Continues to Grow In Spite of a Changing Industry
By Suite Media
No industry is immune to change.
That’s especially true with publishing. It’s a market under pressure—one that is working hard to stay on top of the changes new media presents. But this necessitated shift in the industry only inspires Prince George’s Suite to continue to find ways to grow—and that exactly what it’s doing.
Among the exciting developments taking place at the Suite, the upscale lifestyle magazine is proud to announce that it will now be available for sale in Barnes & Noble stores starting September.
“This is a great step for the Suite and a huge development for Prince George’s because it’s another established and respected brand—like Wegmans and GIANT—that will now include our county alongside other respected jurisdictions,” says Publisher and Editor Raoul Dennis. “We believe this will go a long way in helping to reshape the image of the county, which has been long sought after by many Prince Georgians for years.”
Operating 691 stores across the country, the chain bookseller is the second-largest magazine retailer in the United States, selling around 5,500 magazine and nearly 1,000 newspaper titles. From lifestyle and entertainment to fitness and outdoors, Barnes & Noble is home to a number of publications that include Baltimore Magazine, Chesapeake Bay Magazine, Vanity Fair, Reader’s Digest, Harper’s, Smithsonian, and Black Enterprise. Prince George’s Suite is excited to be among these respected brands in the six Barnes & Noble stores in the region as of this fall.
“We’re proud that our publication is now affiliated with such a world-class brand,” Dennis says. “This relationship between Prince George’s Suite and Barnes & Noble bookstores will introduce thousands of new people to the story and great living of Prince George’s County.”
In addition to this new partnership, the Suite continues to identify partners and support from institutions in the county itself.
“We are still seeking partners within the county and around the region to work with us in this post-housing bubble, slow growth period,” he says.Published on Prince George’s Suite with Suite Media Byline – Friday, August 24, 2012
