With a “shop-local” gift focus + a selective guide to seasonal events
Who should advertise?
Retailers, including museum gift shops, who rely on the holiday season to make or break your year and have a great story to tell our large, city-based and affluent audience;
Nightclubs who want to tell us where to go on Black Wednesday (this issue comes out the day before);
Theaters, dance companies and cultural institutions who produce special shows for the season or want to encourage gift certificates as a holiday gift;
Restaurants, who would like to feed our audience, as they look for sustenance after shopping, or meet friends to exchange holiday cheer, or on their way to a holiday dance or theater production;
Artists and gallerists who organize or participate in art- or artisan-driven local gift fairs;
Fashion retailers, who want to sell holiday party outfits to our audience members to wear to the theater, to the club, or to holiday parties. (Not to mention salons to make them pretty.)
In other words, anyone who wants to make things happen in this holiday season.
+ This year, we’re partnering with Local First Chicago on “Unwrap Chicago,” offering a special media package to its members. Let us know if you’re interested in more details.
