Wigan's FREE local lifestyle magazine.

38 Founded in a back

38 Founded in a back bedroom on Sandy Lane, Turning 10 Local Life now produces five magazines a month (Wigan, St Helens, Chorley, West Lancs and Leigh & District) from our offices at Hewitt Business Park on Winstanley Road. We also deliver over 750,000 leaflets a year too. We’re proud of the fact that many of our customers stay with us, year after year, so here’s what our advertisers have to say about Local Life. Previous to advertising in Local Life, just 10% of our work came from Wigan itself and now, two years after advertising in Local Life, over 50% of our work is local. We get lots of enquiries every month from Local Life, it’s a great magazine which people read and use. Shane Wilson – Vale of Wigan Local Life covers areas that we just can’t reach with any other publication. We know when it has been delivered as our phone never stops ringing. It’s always our first choice for advertising. Sharon Lee – Expressions of Beauty I have advertised in Local Life for over 8 years now and it has consistently been my main source of new business. It is a fantastic, quality magazine which, as well as supporting local businesses, gives its readers an interesting and informative read. I would thoroughly recommend it. Angie Barker Garden Design Local Life is 10 years old this month! I’m pleased to say that every customer we have introduced to Local Life has had a direct and noticeable response. Both us, and our clients, love the publications and they are now one of the first types of local advertising we suggest when putting together promotional campaigns. Elaine Rimmer – Platinum Advertising & Design Ltd It’s been a pleasure being part of your magazines 10 year growth, long may it continue. Bob McWilliam - Manor House Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning It’s a great pleasure to be associated with your magazine. I advertise my brickwork company in Local Life and feel it offers me great value. Marc Mulligan Brickwork As a frequent advertiser and reader of Local Life, it has made a big difference to my business with a vast number of customers coming from looking at the magazine, here’s to another 10 years! Graham Collier- Top Coat Decorating Service We love that little magazine. It makes a difference to customers visiting our showroom and our sales. Andrea Hampson - Cabinet Masters

39 We continue to move forward and have taken on another person to help with the workload generated from the advertisement in Local Life. Chris Linnet – CL Bathrooms Having worked with other advertising mediums over the last 15 years the Local Life publication remains our partner of choice and continues to generate extremely positive responses from clients, both existing and new. David Barton – Prosper Wealth Management Local Life is the best local print advertising media around, without a doubt, and it’s the only publication we advertise in. We also use the leaflet distribution service on a regular basis and it’s very reliable and also quite cheap compared to other distribution companies. Ian Johnson – GreenThumb Wigan I’ve been advertising with Local Life for most of the last decade. It’s the only advertising I need to do and it reliably brings me good quality local jobs every single month. If you’d like to promote your company in Local Life magazine or use our leaflet distribution service, call Nicola or Chris on 01695 627999 or pop into our offices at Unit 8 - Hewitt Business Park, Winstanley Road, Orrell WN5 7ZB. Chris Banks – Cosmeticar Around 80/90% of our work comes from Local Life and it’s all local work, we don’t have to waste hours sitting in traffic each day. As of today (10th April), we’re already booked up until August; that’s how successful Local Life is. Colin Wilson – Wilson Bros. Building and Roofing In my view, Local Life offers my company the most comprehensive coverage of Wigan’s strongest housing areas and I’m delighted to be able to offer my customers the chance to display their homes in this popular local magazine.
