NCI Suspends Accent Home & Garden
Subscribers of regional magazines to receive sister title instead.
Lawrenceville, Georgia-based Network Communications Inc. has suspended publication of Accent Home & Garden magazine.
NCI said it will replace Accent Home & Garden subscriptions with sister publication New England Home magazine, starting with its November/December issue. Both magazines serve the northern New England regional market.
Five layoffs were associated with the closing, Adam Japko, president of NCIâ€™s home design business operations,Â told FOLIO:.
â€śWhen New England Home launched (in 2005), we recognized that like most other regions around the country, New Englandâ€™s consumers and home design marketers could be served most efficiently by one regional title,â€ť Japko said.
NCI said New England Home sales staff will work with Accent Home & Gardenâ€™s advertisers to provide them with continuity programs to make the transition to New England Home.
Accent Home & Garden carried a bi-monthly circulation of 25,000. New England Home, also a bi-monthly, has a circulation of 60,000.
NCI also publishes Apartment Finder and Mature Living Choices.
