Company description

With access to almost 100 million unique visitors per month throughout its network, Wanderful Media is helping retailers by engaging shoppers around local sales and products, with the intent of driving shoppers across the threshold of retail stores.

The company owns and operates Find&Save, a comprehensive collection of local sales and products available on apps for iPhone/iPad and Android devices, on FindnSave.com and on newspaper sites across the country in all 50 of the top 50 DMAs (designated market areas).

Wanderful Media is an independent company financed by a powerful group of media companies, including Advance Digital, A. H. Belo Corporation, Community Newspaper Holdings, Cox Media Group, The E. W. Scripps Company, Gannett Co., GateHouse Media, Graham Holdings Company, Hearst Corporation, Lee Enterprises, MediaNews Group, and  The McClatchy Company.

Wanderful Media represents a media industry initiative to transform the $4 billion business of traditional advertising circulars through digital innovation – just as joint media ventures such as CareerBuilder and Cars.com strengthened the industry’s position through the use of new technology.

In September 2012, Wanderful Media entered the market to connect retail advertisers with millions of consumers nationwide. The company was originally formed in November 2011 as ShopCo Holdings.

Wanderful Media is headquartered in Los Gatos, Calif., and has a development and operations office in downtown Chico, Calif.
