While everyone is focused on the $33 million lottery jackpot this Saturday, lottery retailers ought to focus on the following week. Tuesday’s OzLotto has reached $15 million and Thursday’s Powerball has reached $12 million. These jackpots will ensure that people collecting prizes from the $33 million will reinvest – without them, we’d pay out and lost the sale opportunity. Opportunistic? Yes. It’s business and these lottery games are provide low cost nighttime dreams.

    Hi Early Riser:
    I’m focussed on ALL of them, god knows.
    A Second Division win would be very good thank you.
    I have been a voracious purchaser of magazines for 44 years. I used to get really angry about paying huge markups for overseas titles which were 4 months out of date when they hit the shelves here, and I believe that ‘Down Under’ customers were treated really poorly, considering that we are, per capita, the world’s highest consumers of magazines.

    The situation is a little better now, but as far as I am concerned, Gordon & Gotch and Rupert Murdoch, are my ‘axis of evil’.

    My local newsagent told me the other day that he was struggling. I think the supermarkets are to blame and that consumers should make an effort to purchase goods from specialist shops, and try to think of supermarkets as places for cereal and dogfood. cheers.

    Go small business!!!! Imported magazines are expensive and it surprises me that people pay the price given what information is available online. Keep buying magazines!
