Newsagents not interested in home delivery consolidation

I’ve proposed merging my newspaper home delivery business with those of newsagents near mine along the lines of the business plan I posted here some months back. I’ve failed. The only newsagents interested in amalgamating territories in a shared equity model in Victoria are too far away from my territory. Disinterest among newsagents to drive change in newspaper distribution seems to be a national challenge for the industry.

I’m concerned that if newsagents don’t act to create a new distribution model in the next few months they will lose the opportunity and have significant business consolidation changes imposed on them.
