The Holden Landmark Corporation has reached an agreement with Gate House Media that will expand baystateparent magazine further into Greater Boston.
After nearly a dozen years of publishing, Gate House Media will discontinue its monthly publication Parents & Kids magazine, and its companion website, WickedLocalParents.com. The June issue of P&K Magazine, currently on the street, is the last.
Baystateparent will immediately increase monthly circulation to more than 50,000 copies and add hundreds of new locations throughout Greater Boston to pick up the free magazine. The added distribution will begin with the July issue and be visible in nearly 40 Greater Boston cities and towns and include nearly 20 communities where baystateparent was previously not available. Baystateparent will now be found at more than 1,000 distribution outlets in nearly 200 Massachusetts communities.
Baystateparent magazine began publishing in 1996 and has been named Best Parenting Publication in North America by Suburban Newspapers of America four times since 2004.
Holden Landmark Corp. also publishes six weekly newspapers and numerous companion websites. The privately-held company is headquartered in Worcester, Massachusetts.
