Slimming World magazine up to third in the actively purchased charts

Slimming World magazine is now the third most actively purchased magazine in the UK, new figures (published Thursday 10th August 2017) show.

ABC (Audit Bureau of Circulations) figures, relating to January to June 2017, revealed the magazine had seen its 11th consecutive year-on-year increase in circulation and climbed from fourth to third position in the actively purchased charts.

Editor Sara Ward says: “To move up to third in the actively purchased rankings is fantastic news. We are immensely proud of the way Slimming World magazine has continued to thrive in what has been a difficult period for the publishing industry. To have increased year-on-year sales for the 11th year running is nothing short of remarkable, and this achievement is testament to the hard work that our dedicated team puts into producing a magazine that acts as a wonderful source of inspiration for slimmers at every stage of their weight-loss journey.”
