Over the past 30 years, our distribution area and customer base has grown.
The number of publications we distribute is well over 200. Today we are an
organization making daily deliveries to over 2500 retail locations,
including airports, bookstores, newsstands, convenience stores and hotel and
office lobby shops. Every customer receives an early morning delivery, and
many receive multiple deliveries daily. Our publications include national,
international, ethnic business and entertainment publications.
Representatives visit each sales location weekly to account for unsold
copies, place marketing material and fulfill retailer requests. Larger
retailers are visited regularly by our marketing representatives to analyze
displays and update product mix to match the changing needs of the retailer.
In 1984, we were honored to be the exclusive domestic and international
press supplier to the International and U.S. Olympic committees for the Los
Angeles Summer Olympic Games. We were honored in 1996 to be chosen to supply
both international and domestic press services to the Republican National
Convention in San Diego, and then again in 2000 for the Democratic National
Convention in Los Angeles.
