New Magazine for West Chester

Fig®, a hyper-local communications package offering a voice and vision to downtown West Chester, has launched it’s first magazine edition of Fig West Chester to be distributed throughout the greater Brandywine Valley. Fig Magazine and its social media celebrates the mix of unique shopping, dining, arts and entertainment in the Borough.

“We believe that a unified voice will take West Chester from ‘local treasure’ to ‘regional destination’,” said Deb Brandt, owner of Moxie House that produces Fig®. “Through print, web and social media, Fig cultivates a conversation about the joys of living and visiting the downtown.”

Deb goes on to explain that ‘Fig’ is a symbol of unity and prosperity. The subtleties of figs and their importance in historic cultures make ‘Fig’ a fitting name to showcase a distinctive small city lifestyle. “A fig is small, sophisticated and not too sweet,” she said. “And like the fruit, Fig West Chestermagazine and social media will celebrate the charm that weaves itself into West Chester’s quality of life.” Sign-up at Fig West Chester and have it delivered to your home or office four times a year.
