Starting with a hand cranked mimeograph machine and a second hand typewriter, The Reminder began weekly production from the Stevens' family's rural farmhouse in Coventry Center. From the very beginning they worked to publish the best “total market coverage” advertising paper - distributed FREE to nearly every home, every week, by the U. S. Mail.

Today, The Reminder is still a family-owned and operated enterprise, though after 60 plus years, it's a new family. In February, 2018, Peter and Amey Stevens sold their publication to John Howell, the owner and publisher of Beacon Communications in nearby Warwick, RI. The Reminder has grown to cover all of Coventry, Hope, West Greenwich and most of West Warwick, as well as neighboring towns with a weekly circulation of 31,000. And now, with our sister publications we can offer regional and state-wide advertising with print, inserts and digital. Collectively, we have the largest print distribution in the state.

Our entire publication is online in an interactive format where you can scroll through the pages on your computer screen! Be sure to e-Subscribe so you'll be the first to know when the latest edition is available online! And it's all FREE!

Business owners trust The Reminder to deliver print and digital advertising, marketing services and more to boost their businesses. And our readers know they will find money-saving discounts, coupons, specials and more whenever they shop The Reminder.
