How to get Communities in your local bookstore
Thank you for your interest in getting Communities in your local outlets. Your support of our magazine will help extend our reach, bringing the best of life in cooperative culture to your community.
We have found that the best outlets to focus on are independent bookstores, alternative resource centers, and natural food stores. With that in mind, here are a few documents we put together to get you started.
How To Approach A Store
We take you step-by-step through the process of approaching stores, communicating your passion for Communities, and getting them to sign on.
A note directed at Magazine Buyers/Managers to find out whom they contact to get a wholesale account and start carrying our magazine. Print it out to give to prospective stores and leave it with sample copies of Communities.
