After buying the magazine 10 years ago and relocating it to Allens Avenue in Providence, he said the step-up lease program has continued to increase there. "It's a bigger space for a lot less money," he said of the Pawtucket location, noting that the company's landlord in Providence has been gra- cious in the process. Rhode Island Monthly and its 25-per- son staff will move to Pawtucket in March of next year when its current lease runs out, said Palumbo. Palumbo met Monday with Pawtucket officials about small busi- ness loan programs the company will utilize for furnishing and other costs of moving. The company will take up all of the R.I.
