Town criers were completely wiped out by printed publications, both due to the rise of literacy and the careless driving of newspaper delivery trucks. Surf the printing press's tidal wave of up-to-date information with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-year subscription to Crain's Chicago Business (a $98 value).
For more than 30 years, Crain's Chicago Business has delivered award-winning journalism to Chicago professionals based on detailed reporting and comprehensive knowledge of local business. Every Monday, thousands of subscribers receive in-depth coverage of area companies, business owners, nonprofits, technology, law, inter-office roller-derby results, and more. Each issue dishes out a business banana split of insider perspective on executive actions topped with cool scoops of breaking news and multi-colored industry rankings sprinkled throughout. Recent features have detailed the Sun-Times' preparations for paperless publishing, office rental options for small businesses and entrepreneurs, and common anxieties experienced when starting new careers.
Occasionally cannonballing into the pool of regular issues are signature annual issues such as the "Best Places to Work," "Who's Who in Business," and "40 Under 40." In December, Crain's Chicago Business will gift you an issue of Book of Lists (a $44.95 value), a comprehensive collection of directories for executives and business owners to use as a market-research tool, with a special appendix of confidential North Pole naughty-and-nice lists.
Allow three to five weeks for delivery. This Groupon is also good for subscription renewal.

Crain's Chicago Business
For more than 30 years, Crain's Chicago Business has been covering the ins and outs of the business world—first in a weekly business newspaper and now on an award-winning website, too. Though the publication breaks new stories constantly, it's best known for its iconic annual issues. The 40 Under 40 issue, for example, highlights young business innovators, and the Best Places to Work issue focuses on businesses well-loved by their employees, such as Santa's workshop.
