Great American Media Services, a division of Great American Publishing Inc. and publisher of several business-to-business magazines and websites, has announced that it has purchased GIFT SHOP Magazine from Pinnacle Publishing Group in Hanover, Massachusetts.
GIFT SHOP’s operations will be relocated to the Great American Media Services headquarters in Sparta, Michigan. The company also has purchased the supporting Web properties, including www.giftshopmag.com, as well as “Wrap Up,” the publication’s e-newsletter.
“Great American Media Services is excited to bring GIFT SHOP into our growing multimedia publishing business,” said Matt McCallum, publisher and CEO. “This publication has a strong presence in the gift shop industry, and it is a natural fit for our Retail Division, which includes Stationery Trends, Museums & More and Party & Paper Retailer magazines.”
GIFT SHOP Magazine serves a diverse audience of specialty gift shop managers and buyers around the country and is a leading resource for connecting those buyers with the products and services they need.
“We look forward to building on GIFT SHOP’s recent impressive growth and continuing to move the publication and its digital properties forward to even better serve its audience,” McCallum said. “Our talented team of publishing professionals brings a wide range of experience and talent to the table that will help to take the magazine to the next level.”
