Hi Dan,

We get a lot of value from our subscription to The Economist. Inidviduals often don't check it out because it's a bit pricey ($130+/year), but people really appreciate us having it.

i posted this inquiry four years ago.  apologies to those with long memories or those who use the archive.

then again, much can change in a few years.

we are sprucing-up our periodical collection for the holidays.  Of our forty-some subscriptions, we carry most of the core, boilerplate, titles:  time, good housekeeping, sunset, architectural digest, people, etc.

we also have some regional-specific items: surfer, oregon coast, cowboys & indians.

My questions are twofold:

"if you could add just one new title to your adult periodical collection, what would it be?

"among your current titles, which do you consider having the most overall value?"

circulation doesnt necessary equate with value as many of our periodicals are used in-house.


thanks in advance,
