FROM OUR ADVERTISERS
“We spend a lot of time and energy on developing our public image and reaching out using social media, and were pleasantly surprised when the first publishing of The ‘Ville resulted in a few calls about legal services right after the publication was delivered. At least one has followed up, met with us, and we were retained on a nice estate plan matter.”
John Kelly - Kelly & Kelly, P.C., Attorneys & Counselors at Law
"I have seen organizations use similar concepts, but The ‘Ville is different. It is a great combination of editorial and advertising. Publisher Kurt Kuban is known for his outstanding work as a local reporter and that skill makes The ‘Ville more than just a slick printed piece with ads in it. This is a magazine people want to keep around the house until the next edition arrives. Schoolcraft College looks forward to being a part of The ‘Ville for years to come."
Frank Ruggirello, Jr. - Executive Director of Marketing & Advancement, Schoolcraft College
"A majority of my clients are from Northville. Our firm was looking for a way to announce to residents that we now practice in the areas of Estate and Elder law. No one knows Northville better than Publisher Kurt Kuban and his staff, and because of this, we chose to spend our advertising dollars with The ‘Ville. Within weeks of its first publication calls starting pouring into our office. We are proud to endorse The ‘Ville as Northville’s most reliable source of news."
Joseph P. Corriveau, Corriveau Law
“It’s the best advertising I’ve used! I have new listings from Northville residents that specifically mentioned seeing my ad. I am proud to support and partner with The Ville!”
Terri O’Brien, Coldwell Banker Weir Manuel- Northville
“We look forward to advertising in The ‘Ville. It is a hometown publication, run by residents of the community who have a passion for the community. We both support our community and want it to be the best it can be. We also find that by advertising in The ‘Ville, we receive increased inquiries by others in our community and by those who have seen our community and aspire to live and build here.
We also feel we receive a personal commitment to our business from The ‘Ville, more caring for our success than other advertising venues. We feel that this is a great place for us to park our advertising dollars, and we see this as a win-win-win for the community, the residents of Northville, and our company. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this community through your efforts to make Northville and its residents more informed about where we live.”

FROM OUR READERS
We just received the inaugural issue of The ‘Ville. This is a long overdue publication devoted to Northville. We just let our subscription to the local paper expire after 43 years due to the lack of local news.
The articles in The ‘Ville were well written with viewpoints on all sides of an issue.
We both share an interest in local history and unfortunately researchers in 20-30 years will find very little of historical interest about Northville from the local paper. Your magazine really fills that void. We hope you could supply the Northville District Library with copies of each issue in a format suitable for future researchers.
Pat and Richard Allen, Northville
As a 20+ year resident of Northville, I think you have created one of the best community publications that I have ever seen! I read every issue, cover to cover! Keep up the great work. Keep the presses rolling!
Jeff Vos, Northville
Thank you for The ‘Ville. We dropped our newspaper subscription. It is pleasant to read a publication so apolitical, so informative, and so centered on our Northville area. We appreciate the broad coverage that embraces the interests of the young as well as the not so young and, most importantly, that there is no negativity. You are exploring our community and allowing us to know so much more about it. Please continue.
Clark and Jackie Lawrence
Local does matter, and The ‘Ville has done an excellent job of bringing local news and events to the Northville community, while our “local newspaper” does so less and less. Thank you for a job well done. I love getting our “hyper local news” each month.
