Save time and money, don’t label weekly magazines

maglabelsI don’t see any reason for newsagents to label weekly magazine. It wastes time and money. In the example in the photo the large label in the top left corner also partially obscures the Who magazine masthead.

I’ve never labelled weekly magazines.

    We tried not labelling Peoples Friend. That lasted less than an hour when we realised that AU$ are not on the cover. British weeklies are the exception and we don’t label Aust weeklies either.

    I dont label Peoples Friend – not one complaint or concern from a customer in years

    The Distributors importing the product should ensure an Australian price is printed at the source – not added at the retail end.
