REI shelves catalog for print magazine

No stranger to the unconventional, REI is at it again: The outdoors retailer is discontinuing its print mail-order catalog and debuting a magazine. Called Uncommon Path, the print publication will run on a quarterly basis and include stories focused on the outdoors. Kent, Washington-based REI is partnering with Hearst Magazines on the project, which will be staffed by a team of roughly six in-house REI employees as well as a collection of freelancers and Hearst workers. “What this magazine represents is how we are trying to deliver some of our own content and environmental journalism to help people understand issues around the outdoors better,” says Paolo Mottola, editorial director.  He concedes that print journalism is not exactly on the upswing, but predicts that the singular outdoors-focus of Uncommon Path should help REI succeed. Mottolo says the magazine is another vehicle to deliver REI content to consumers, and that it will exist alongside the retailer’s online publishing, podcast and documentaries. Hearst has a similar publishing deal with Airbnb for Airbnb Magazine, which has a distribution of 1 million. REI is finalizing its retail strategy of the publication and expects to sell in some airports, bookstores and newsstands around the country, as well as in all 155 of its stores, with a cover price of $4.95. The first issue this fall, at 84 pages, will include a mix of editorial features and print ads. Sucharita Kodali, VP and principal analyst at Forrester,... Continue reading at 'Advertising Age'
