Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce Launches New Bi-Monthly Magazine

The Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that it is launching the production of a bi-monthly magazine that will revolutionize the way Fuquay-Varina organizations communicate with town residents. The new “Suburban Living Fuquay-Varina” magazine will be published for the first time in mid-November, just in time for the holidays. A rich, vibrant publication full of feature articles and timely community information, Suburban Living will also offer a directory of Chamber businesses twice per year, a new “Best Of” listing in each edition, and a community bulletin board.

This new magazine will be published by Robert Fox of Fox Publishing, and will be modeled after a similar magazine he pioneered in Holly Springs just a few months ago. After seeing the publication’s first edition, several Fuquay-Varina Chamber members contacted Fox and the Chamber office to inquire about getting a magazine in Fuquay-Varina like the one in Holly Springs. Fox was happy to entertain the idea, and within several short weeks, the Chamber’s Board of Directors approved the concept.

“The entire community has been struggling with ways to get the word out to residents about things going on around town since the Independent closed last year,” Chamber Executive Director Tommy Broadwell explains. “We have several really good online vehicles, but there’s no way to guarantee saturation.”

Suburban Living will range between 48 and 64 pages, and will be mailed to over 18,000 homes using the post office’s EDDM program, which uses mail carrier routes rather than just zip codes to fine tune delivery.  This will be the first time that a magazine of this quality is mailed free of charge to every resident of Fuquay-Varina.

“We are very excited to be able to bring this caliber of communication to our rapidly growing community,” says the Chamber’s Dir. of Member Services Lynanne Fowle. “It will meet the needs of so many organizations, the town, and the Chamber. And it will be a great vehicle for our businesses to reach out to local residents with information they can use rather than just simple advertisements.”

Information about advertising in this publication is being emailed to Chamber businesses this week. Advertisers are able to submit editorial copy as well. Ad sales will begin immediately. Questions can be fielded by Chamber staff at (919) 552-4947 or Robert Fox at (919) 600-4756.
