Love the magazine
this location moved to williow lawn location ì
Their location is convenient & fronts Broad St. Their best story was uncommon & interesting. Out of the box thinking & independent story decisions impress. Their story on Richmond's Chief of Police, Marine Alfred Durham, was excellent. Few knew based on local coverage, that Chief Durham created a nationally recognized homicide clearance rate & team. There was no complacency on his police force & he defined excellence by pushing forth officer call in when behaviors seen did not represent the force well. Accountability & transparency was present in the Chief's decisions & he carried his model from D.C. down to Richmond. Instead of kids winding up in jail for behavior problems, they could enter a writing & education track. R.M. wrote a fine disclosure story on a humble man, Marine Alfred Durham, whom many did not know. He cared about the kids in Richmond, as much as the adults who fell into hard ways & hard times. Who knew he visited the jail & talked to the prisoners. One prisoner quoted him, " You may have not had a real friend before, but you have one now. Do better because you can. Look up. A gang never sees forward & never goes anywhere but down." Without stories like this, the public is left in the dark. RM is also home to Harry Kollatz Jr. He once was on WCVE's Golden Age of Radio Returns.
I don't know a lot about the magazine.. but the quality of women coming in and out of the Book Bindery is off the charts.. something is trendy there.. ðŸ‘ â¤
I subscribed to this magazine in January and to date I have only received 3 magazines when I contacted them to let them know I am not receiving my subscriptions the person who is responsible for this was very very rude and had an attitude. She did however send me 2 past months I did not receive which is part of the 3 I mentioned above. She recommended I go to the post office which I did and they recommended I speak with my postman which I did too. To date I have not resolved this problem. It's a shame because the magazine is fantastic.
Great local magazine for area
This is a really wonderful magazine. I'm already married but, I truly enjoy the articles and the history they include in their stories!
Stop in to buy the RVA Point and Shoot poster for $5. The View That Named Richmond is also available!
If you're new to town, this should be one of your first stops. Richmond Magazine covers the city in depth, from issues of "Best Doctors" to what's happening in arts, entertainment, food, and around time. They also publish Rhome and several specialty publications like Richmond Bride, but what you want to pick up right away are the current Sourcebook and any specialty guides, like the pet-owners' guide. You'll have your own not-so-little black book of Richmond's best to help you get started. One subscription price gets you all of the above so it's a good deal. The office is in the old Book Bindery building up near the Science Museum and Pleasants Hardware, but on the other side of the street. If you go in person, they have complimentary copies of all of the above in the office lobby so you won't have to wait weeks for your first issues.
