For Advertisers

County Lines Magazine has enjoyed over 40 years of continuous monthly publication with a broad base of loyal, affluent readers with the buying power advertisers want.

Based in West Chester, PA, in the heart of Chester County, we serve an area steeped in history and tradition. And this area is also a wealthy, attractive, fast-growing region, situated at the prosperous suburban crossroads of Philadelphia and Wilmington.

As a magazine, our editorial focus is the fascinating culture and vibrant lifestyle of this very special region. More than 80,000 people trust and read our magazine each month in print, with more readers online and in our digital edition on ISSUU.

Our readers are affluent, savvy, well educated and community minded. They are largely homeowners with families. They like to shop, dine and take advantage of all life has to offer, and have the means to do so.

As a business, our mission is to serve our community and advertisers who want to reach this readership. The coveted, long-standing relationship between County Lines and its loyal readers is unmatched.

We do the job our advertisers want us to do, cost effectively and imaginatively, bringing their message directly to the people they most want to target, using trusted, relevant, engaging content tailored for a local audience.

Walter J Cook Jeweler has been advertising with County Lines for as long as I can remember. We have always counted on County Lines to place us in front of an audience we value. Many times over the years we have had customers make a special trip just to pick up the current issue. I cannot imagine not having County Lines as part of our advertising program.
