Sound Publishing announces Little Nickel publications moving into papers

Beginning in September, Sound Publishing, Inc. will combine the strength of its community newspaper readership and home delivery with the respected classified content and brand recognition of its Little Nickel products.

Little Nickel’s advertising will be delivered within the pages of the community newspaper products.

“Our Nickel advertising clients will certainly see benefit of having their advertising message delivered directly to homes. And our readers will no longer have to remember to pick up a Little Nickel at a rack. This change just makes sense,” said Gloria Fletcher, president of Sound Publishing.

Little Nickel rack distribution will be eliminated.

Sound Publishing has established five zones in King, Snohomish and Kitsap counties to give people a range of options for advertising. Each zone has a circulation between 50,000 and 80,000.

Advertisers will be able to place ads in any or all zones and/or in individual Sound Publishing newspapers. On Whidbey Island, Sound Publishing publishes the Whidbey News-Times, South Whidbey Record, The Whidbey Examiner and The Crosswind.

The Little Nickel offices in Everett, Tacoma and Portland will be closed. Many Little Nickel employees will be retained and will move into other Sound Publishing offices throughout the Puget Sound area.
