Haymarket plans to relaunch Stuff after Dennis sells off title

LONDON - Haymarket Magazines has bought Dennis Publishing's men's magazine, Stuff, which it intends to relaunch as a boys’ toys title.

Haymarket Magazines has bought Dennis Publishing’s men's magazine,

Stuff, which it intends to relaunch as a boys’ toys title.

Stuff was closed by Dennis in December because of low circulation and

advertising revenue. The magazine was launched as a bi-monthly title in

November 1996 and was originally positioned as a lads guide to consumer

goods. But last year, more emphasis was placed on its lifestyle


Eric Verdon-Roe, the managing director of Haymarket Magazines, said:

’The magazine will be more about product and less about lifestyle. All

the product ranges will be potential targets for advertising and Stuff’s

audience will be more valuable if the readers are committed


Haymarket Magazines, a subsidiary of Haymarket Publishing, which

publishes Campaign, will produce a February edition of Stuff to ensure

no issues are dropped as the magazine changes ownership.

An advertising push will relaunch the redesigned title.
