Marple's Northwest Business Letter ceases publication

Article published in the final issue March 6, 2013.

This marks the final issue of Marple’s Northwest Business Letter.

Despite our best efforts, circulation numbers for Marple’s have continued a steady slide to the point that the newsletter was no longer viable. Our attempts at reversing the trend were unsuccessful. There was a place for a newsletter like this one when Elliot Marple launched it more than 60 years ago. Now it’s a crowded marketplace, with many free offerings. It was a difficult decision to cease publication, but one that had to be made.

Subscribers will soon be receiving reimbursements in the mail for the remaining time on their subscriptions.

Most importantly, we want to thank you, especially our longtime subscribers who remained loyal to Marple’s all these years.

Thousands of readers rely on Marple's, published every other Wednesday, to keep them abreast of all the important trends in the Northwest economy. What industries are recovering fastest?
