The Old Town Crier Magazine, based out of Alexandria, VA is a wonderful example of how a local publisher highlights the amazing attributes of the communities they cover, year after year.
Established in 1988 as a lifestyle publication that covers the happenings in Alexandria, the publication expanded its coverage in 1995 to include Anne Arundel, Calvert and St. Mary’s Counties in Maryland, Fauquier, Loudoun, Warrenton and Rappahannock Counties in Virginia and points between including National Harbor.
The Old Town Crier provides unique, exciting, and detailed stories about local businesses, authors, artists, events, entertainment, arts, food and culture. High-quality photography enhances each article, along with an attractive layout.
One feature that we especially like is their inclusion of pets & animals in the stories they share. An entire section on their website is devoted to local pets of the month, animal adoption and other heart-warming topics about furry friends. In the recent print edition, they devote a special article about Halloween safety for pets.
The Old Town Crier is distributed monthly to over 450 outlets including restaurants, retail establishments, hotels and visitor centers in all of the communities they cover; as well as several residential communities in Alexandria. Currently, their readership is well over 75,000 and growing!
