A Victorian newsagency is preparing to close and have put remaining stock on a deals website, including magazines at 25% off. One person posted some interesting comments:

Magazines? I think they are those things at the supermarket checkouts.

Regrettably, one of the reasons newsagents are closing down.

The only time I read magazines is at check out or sneak a look in the magazine section at the supermarket or at the doctors waiting room. I don’t think I have bought a magazine for years. Also as a true OZber we have free library access to them online. Although having said that it’s still not as good a just flicking through the pages in a physical one. Yes I was thinking Newsagents are on the way out. They have to supplement their income – Tatts tickets, dry cleaning, & sell smokes. I don’t even know if its worth them doing the newspaper deliveries, but they still do.
