Two more magazine closures
Architectural Openings Journal, a quarterly national publication for architects, contractors, specification writers and wholesalers in Canada's openings industry, has ceased publication earlier this year after four years in business.

The ad base dried up for Architectural Openings Journal.
“The advertising base was getting smaller and smaller,” says publisher Bob Rodkin. “The base of accounts we had were loyal, the same ones year after year, but the potential advertising base, they were getting bought up. That whole industry is being absorbed: half by the construction and half by the security industry,”

Centre of the City suspended

Metroland Media Group has put another publication on hold. Centre of the City magazine, a bi-monthly magazine with a circulation of more then 36,000, recently stopped printing in order to allow for restructuring of its editorial content and distribution arm.

Metroland says it will relaunch the magazine at the end of this year. Metroland has already suspended or closed five magazines this year: Suburban Life, Guelph Life, Rex Magazine, Live It!. and Centre of the City.
