Peddling the wrong Destination

Minot Area Chamber of Commerce president L. John MacMartin brings to area businesses’ attention news that sales representatives for an out-of-state publisher have been peddling advertising space in a publication calling itself “Destination Magic City featuring Ward County.”

MacMartin reports that the sales reps have suggested that the publication is supported by Visit Minot and the Chamber, which he says is untrue. The publication’s title is misleadingly similar to The Minot Daily News’ section called Destination Minot, which both Visit Minot and the Chamber do express support for.

“We encourage you to consider this publication,” MacMartin’s release states. “To make sure you are supporting Destination Minot, produced by The Minot Daily News, make sure you are dealing with a salesperson from The Minot Daily News.”
