Cool was Good, But Weed was Better

check_mark_125x125Back on October 28th, 2015, I posted the November 2015 issue of National Geographic as the Cover of the Week.  So, how did it perform in Canada?

Well, it outsold the November 2014 issue (by a smidge)…15,772 copies compared to 15,497 last year…a gain of 275 copies or 1.8%

So what was the biggest selling issue of National Geographic in Canada?

The June 2015 issue which sold 28,247 copies at a 52.1% sell-thru.

Wow…now that’s far out and very cool.
