Town&Style Turns 8!

This year, Town&Style is celebrating eight years of sharing the best of St. Louis with the community. It’s an accomplishment our team is proud to achieve, but one that wouldn’t have happened without the support of you, our readers, and the organizations that have stood behind us from the beginning. We’d like to take this special opportunity to spotlight some of those committed relationships.

What do you like about T&S?
Town&Style is a great collection of news that informs readers about local businesses, schools, arts organizations and nonprofits. The unique way it presents the news draws you into the community, introduces you to great people and makes you feel very proud of our city. It’s so positive from cover to cover! Thank you!

What is your favorite column to read in the paper?
I always am inspired when I read Heard in the Halls. Our local students are incredibly creative, innovative and talented, and as a Town&Style reader, it’s always fun to share in their successes and discoveries. Thanks for always highlighting well-deserving young men and women.

What do you like about T&S?
I like that the T&S team works with their advertisers and the subjects of their articles to get at the heart of trends and topics that matter to the people of this region. The content and the organizations that sponsor the magazine don’t feel disconnected—they work together.

Why is T&S important to the community?
It consistently covers the arts with such enthusiasm. While there is a place in regional journalism for harder-hitting art criticism, I think another role that local publications fill is the championing of creative enterprise. T&S is constant in that support, featuring in-depth articles on exhibitions, artists from about town and the communities they serve.

Why did you take the plunge and support the magazine at its inception?
Our company believes in a cross-marketing strategy that uses print, digital and e-marketing to bring properties to potential buyers. Properties can get lost, especially when the market is brisk, so we like to make sure they are front and center. When Town&Style entered the market, its approach was fun and unique, so we wanted to use the publication to add a dimension to our print initiative that would further highlight and bring attention to select properties.

Why did you take the plunge and support the magazine at its inception?
We followed our sales rep when she said she was moving to T&S. We had confidence in her.

Why is T&S important to the community?
It brings us so much news about our community in articles that are crisply written and beautifully photographed. It is not unusual to see someone we know in every issue.

We felt Town&Style would reach our upscale clientele because of its emphasis on local events, restaurants, charities and housing.

Why is T&S important to the community?
It provides a wealth of information about things like summer opportunities for students, charitable opportunities and community engagement activities. This type of compassion and outreach aligns closely with the types of activities our team members and residents find inspiring and fulfilling.

It provides great editorial coverage and offers cost-effective advertising opportunities to schools and nonprofits that often are working with smaller budgets. This results in a really good balance of content among many different sectors and industries, which is important for our local community.

I personally really enjoy the format of Talk of the Towns. I’m always looking for updates about my home neighborhood (Kirkwood)—and I always learn something new! Plus I like the casual, conversational tone of the writing.
