About Greet North End Tacoma
It’s great to know the people within your community. But life is busy, and we can only lean on technology so much to learn about those around us. That means many residents feel less connected than they’d like to the area they have chosen to call “home.”
Greet North End Tacoma is an invitation to the community connection you’ve been looking for. It’s more than a free monthly publication. It’s a warm “hello” from community members who want to share their stories and open their doors to conversation.
Greet North End Tacoma shares reader-contributed stories about featured residents, community events and attractions, and local businesses.
About Stroll Canterwood & Stroll Lakeside
We know genuine connection – with neighbors next door and business owners down the street – makes for a more meaningful experience. And we believe getting to know people in your community should be as easy and enjoyable as an afternoon stroll. That’s why, since 2004, our magazines have been the means to a more connected life.
Stroll introduces different neighbors each month by sharing their stories and photos in the magazine. And through Business Spotlight stories, advertising, and in-person events, residents meet the people behind local businesses as well.
About BeLocal Tacoma
The N2 Company began its journey to print media powerhouse status through its flagship product, Stroll & Greet magazines. These custom publications, which serve well-established neighborhoods, are the perfect vessel to connect residents to their neighbors down the street. But we realized a need wasn’t being met: informing the newest homebuyers on places to go and local businesses to use in their area, outside of the neighborhood.
Enter BeLocal: the comprehensive guide for all new movers to the greater Tacoma community. Since launching in 2020, we’ve served over 5,000 newcomers to Tacoma.

The Right Communities with The Right Content
We partner with the residents of desirable communities like North Tacoma & Browns Point to produce a multimedia content experience focused on what our readers truly care about: families, kids, pets, neighborhood events, etc. Smart businesses know our neighborhoods are difficult to reach through traditional methods and love that almost all of our content comes directly from the people who live in the neighborhood. Our readers love it, because it's all about them and what they truly care about.
An Engaging, Unique Approach to Advertising
Since nearly all of our content comes directly from our readers, our business partners are confident they are being seen. Our partners know that our publications reach their ideal market and they appreciate our method of targeting their advertising directly to them. Businesses that tend to be a good fit for us rely heavily on word-of-mouth advertising and understand the true value of just a handful of connections with the right people in our community. In essence, they appreciate the ability to gain exposure and light the match toward more word-of-mouth in front of a difficult-to-reach demographic.
The Right Connections with the Right Communities
Beyond the publication itself, our business partners engage with their ideal market via digital re-targeting online, specifically in our communities. In addition, our sponsors meet our residents in the community at private social events we host for the neighborhood. This allows our partners to connect with their ideal market personally instead of just advertising at them. With a clear focus on relational marketing, our sponsors become a fabric of the community. Quite frankly, no other advertising medium allows for the access we offer our partners.
