Print or digital for you?

Newsagents were asked in the October National Newsagent whether they would prefer their magazine to be in print or digital.

So far it’s a 100% vote for print! (more decisive than the Scottish vote today!!) What do you think? Take our 30 second poll.

    • Hi Matthew,
      I cannot see any adverts as our server blocks them. Just checking on the WordPress ad policy, they say this:

      About These Ads
      The site you just visited is part of There are two reasons why you might see ads on a site:

      The site is part of the WordAds program and has elected to show ads to earn money from their site.
      The site is one of the sites hosted on that has not purchased the No Ads upgrade, and we are running ads to cover the costs of operating the site for the user. We run these types of ads sparingly in an attempt to interfere as little as possible with the experience of reading a site. There’s more info about our approach to ad serving in this blog post.
      In both of the above cases, the ad you saw could be coming from a number of ad partners. The ads change depending on factors like your location and the type of site you are visiting.

      If you are a user and you would like to permanently remove all ads from your site, please take a look at our No Ads upgrade.

      If you saw an inappropriate ad, please report it to Please include the address of the site (e.g.,, the date/time the ad appeared, and a screenshot of the ad.

      … it’s a bit like free to air TV, I guess, we sometimes see adverts we don’t want to see – but fortunately they soon go away. Not sure I can control what appears but will follow up.



    The magazine sits on our kitchen table for a whole month until we have read it from cover to cover.
    You can’t leave a laptop, phone or tablet open at a certain page for that long!!
    We have been in the industry for 18 years and have read every edition.
    For the first few years it was like a training manual to help us to make our business better – we read in awe of all the great newsagents who were featured and aspired to have a successful businesses just like theirs.
    The shop fitting section used to make us cringe as we felt inadequate because our shop wasn’t as good.
    We love to see what new products are on offer and decide if it fits our mix.
    We read every letter to the editor and often disagreed but never got around to writing our own.
    The leasing and financial advise has been read with interest and many of the tips acted upon.
    Every edition is carefully filed once it has left the kitchen table is ready to pull out at any time to review some of the earlier articles.
    Most importantly the on line edition doesn’t include a photo of our sensational editor!!
    If you need any more reasons to keep our printed version, just let us know.

    Kind regards,

    Leoni & Philip Jenner.
    Port Mall Newsagency.
