Sequim Gazette – 2009 Partner Paper Advertising Rates We’ve got you covered!

More than half of Sequim Gazette readers shop in Kitsap County on a regular basis. Sequim Gazette readers are predominantly baby boomers with assets, discretionary wealth and plenty of time to shop. Since there are virtually no department stores in Sequim, they shop frequently in Kitsap County to take advantage of a wide array of services, product selection and competitive prices. The community has long had a reputation as a retirement haven, but the past couple years have seen a rise in younger couples settling in the area. Placing an ad in the Gazette puts your message in a place readers trust, and opens them to experiencing your product or service as if it were a referral.

Sequim Sequim is located in the sun between the deep waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the breathtaking Olympic Mountains of Washington State. The retirees are still moving here, and as a result the business community now includes several corporate chains and fast-food outlets. Sequim now boasts of the largest Safeway store in Western Washington, and another large grocery store, QFC, recently opened its doors. The enthusiasm of the new residents has formed a perfect blend with the history and experience of the “old timers” to make Sequim an active and caring community with a friendly small-town flavor. Rural, but only a short distance from the culture of Seattle, the shopping in Silverdale, and the old-world flavor of Victoria, BC.

Area Demographics • 70% are female. • 64% are retired. • 77% have college education. • 84% own their own home. • Average household income is $50,000.

Forks The small town of Forks, Washington has long been a favorite destination for those possessing the pioneer spirit and a love of the land. Nestled on a broad prairie between the contiguous United States only temperate rainforest and the rugged Pacific Coast, Forks may be remote, but it is a pioneer and leader of the world’s wired rural communities. Forks was named the first rural High Tech High School in America by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for the community’s drive to continually learn and make use of the latest technologies in education. Forks’ technical infrastructure, which includes DSL, video conferencing, and a soon-to-be completed extensive fiber-optic network, is attracting a new breed of highly skilled worker that thrives on telework and telecommuting.
