Sumner fade rule Independent Retailerís Print Publication Produces Greater Readership and Response

Sumner Communications, leading publisher of general merchandise trade magazines, directories and websites for over 25 years, announces its largest issue ever of Independent Retailer magazine.

Scott Sumner, CEO of Independent Retailer magazine’s parent company, Sumner Communications, expressed his enthusiasm about the August issue, “With the economy in a state of recovery, our latest issue has come at a time when retailers are regaining their purchasing power and looking to make profitable partnerships with importers, manufacturers and suppliers. Targeted to the everyday business needs of independent retailers, Independent Retailer not only helps in identifying such opportunities, but also provides guidance for running a successful business.”

The soon-to-be-released August issue is a testament to the continued growth of Independent Retailer since its inception in 1989. Its 144 pages offer more purchasing information than ever before from over 200 manufacturers and suppliers. Readers will find editorial on the state of the current wholesale merchandise industry, new products for markets including dollar, boutique and gift stores, as well as contributed pieces on eCommerce, merchandising and drop ship programs.

Independent Retailer is a monthly wholesale purchasing guide. Among its pages are hundreds of offers from America’s leading importers, manufacturers and wholesale suppliers. In addition, subscribers of the magazine receive a top quality editorial report on the latest news, marketing and management strategies, as well as new products. With a monthly readership of over 50,000 and circulation in all 50 sates, plus Canada, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, Independent Retailer’s vital business information produces greater readership, more pass-along readership, and more time spent with a publication than any other general merchandise trade publication.

Copies of the issue will be available at the ASD tradeshow, July 31 to August 3, along with Sumner Communications’ other trade publications, Web Wholesaler and The Merchandiser Group magazines. Representatives can be found in both the North and South halls in booths P6 and LL3. For subscription and advertising information, call 800-999-8281.
