check_mark_125x125Back on May 30th, 2014, I blogged about Toronto Life‘s new Neighbourhoods SIP.  So it’s time to do a Check Up to see how it performed.

At a $9.95 cover price, these high-quality SIP’s are an important contributor to the overall newsstands sales story.

This particular issue sold 7,832 copies, and went on sale on June 2nd, 2014.

This was better than their Real Estate SIP by 515 copies or 7%, which went on sale March 31st, 2014 and sold 7,317 copies.

It was also better than their City Home SIP by 2,925 copies or 60%, which went on sale August 4th, 2014.
