Before wrapping up at the end of March, the Magazine Moment campaign is spotlighting Canadian magazines at over 100 retail locations across Canada. Promotional elements vary by location, and include Magazine Mashup videos, “Read Canadian Magazines/Lisez le magazines d’ici” signage and display space featuring member magazines.
Videos and signage are already appearing at Gateway Newstands in Ontario and Quebec. Beginning March 5, watch for promotional end cap displays at Chapters Indigo stores across Canada.
Independent newsstands and bookstores are also participating, including three winners of Magazines Canada’s “Retailer of the Year” award:
Presse Internationale (Bloor Street), Toronto
Munro’s Books, Victoria
The Gifted Type, Ottawa
Other participating independents include Banyen Books & Sound, Vancouver; The Daily Globe, Calgary; and for the first time, Queen Books in Toronto, Novel Idea in Kingston, and Mediaphile in Montreal.
Many independent stores stock and display a broad offering of Canadian titles. If there’s a retailer in your neighbourhood that could be Canadian magazine-friendly, please let us know! Contact Retail Accounts Manager Chris Chambers at email@example.com.
The Canadian Magazine Moment campaign is made possible with the support of the Ontario Media Development Corporation, and the Government of Canada through the Canada Periodical Fund (CPF) of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
