CEO, Garden & Gun
We here at Garden & Gun are feeling good about the state of our industry. Our first half newsstand sales are up 17 percent over the same period last year, our third quarter ad revenue is up 36 percent, and our ancillary businesses (online, retail, events, brand extensions) continue to grow. It just proves that consumers and advertisers are still interested in a quality editorial product. For us down here in the South, the forecast is looking sunny!
