Middlesex Publications, Inc was founded in 1983, introducing Pennysaver shopper magazines to Central New Jersey consumers by direct mail. Pennysaver evolved over time, changing its name to Town Trends Magazine. Today, in addition to its very "clipable" coupons and advertisements, Town Trends features MPI's Family Fun Calendar of Events and informative articles. The family of Town Trends Magazines has grown to include eight geographic zones with an aggregate monthly mailing exceeding 140, 000 in Middlesex, Monmouth and Mercer counties. Middlesex Publications' award-winning N.J. Suburban Parent Magazine was the first newspaper of its kind in New Jersey. It contains an even more extensive version of MPI's Family Fun Calendar of Events, thus providing parents with a valuable guide to fun and educational activities in the tri-state area each month. Suburban Parent also features articles and columns which cover parenting topics. The magazine has become the Central Jerseyan's source for information on family health, child care, education, summer camps, after-school activities, the sandwich generation and much more. The family of N.J. Suburban Parent Magazines now numbers three zones, reaching 78, 000 families each month. As MPI continues to explore new avenues of service to residents and consumers of Central New Jersey and also to its business community, service and circulation continue to expand. The ultimate expression of this drive toward excellence is our website, NJParentWeb.com. Featuring the most complete and expansive verison of MPI's Family Fun Calendar of Events, this website offers New Jersey families the most comprehensive listing of the widest variety of places to go and things to do in the most convenient form. No print or internet source offers more. Simultaneously, NJParentWeb.com offers advertisers and sponsors the opportunity to serve the community while publicizing their goods and services to a literally limitless audience. NJParentWeb.com also contains Resources - lists of places to go, things to do, and sources of information and aid ( like theatres, museums, hospitals and hotlines ) organized by category. Resource lists are also gateways that link to other sites where further information is available. As MPI continues to develop the site, NJParentWeb.com will become an increasingly valuable planning and research tool for every member of New Jersey's families.
