When we launched Seven Days on September 6, 1995, we persuaded the following businesses and individuals to advertise in a paper they’d never laid eyes on. They took a leap of faith for which we are eternally grateful.
We enticed these advertisers with a three-for-two deal, which guaranteed we’d be able to put out at least three substantial issues. When deadlines for the fourth issue rolled around, we realized with horror that we were going to have to do this every week.
And so we have, 762 times. Today’s paper is the 763rd!
Not all of our inaugural advertisers are still around. But many have endured the test of time, taste and economic vicissitudes. Congratulations to them, with a special shout-out to others who launched in 1995. Huge thanks to you and the hundreds of others who have chosen to market your wares, events, services and classes in Seven Days.
Here’s to another 15!
