Hearst Shutters SHOP Etc. And Weekend
Aug 28, 2006, 8:01 AM
Hearst announced last week that it was closing two magazines--SHOP Etc. and Weekend--citing a failure to meet expectations, coupled with a tough economy and challenging newsstand environment. SHOP Etc. will end after its October issue and Weekend after its September issue. Quick & Simple--another title in development that was introduced last year--is showing steady improvement, and Hearst says it will continue investing in that franchise.
