Can newsagents sell $500.00 gifts? Yes!

Oh, no, that not a newsagent line. Any supplier rep saying that is clueless about what could sell in a newsagency.

More and more newsagents are playing outside of what has been traditional for the channel. Suppliers need to stop editing what they pitch to retailers in the newsagency channel.

This photo is one of the displays in one of my newsagencies. It represents two artist made higher end ceramic ranges that would look at home in any boutique gift or homewares shop … just as they look at home in my shop.

Now more than ever, with suppliers challenged at hw they reach retailers and especially possible new accounts, they need to be open to what could be possible rather than managing to a low bar they have set for themselves.
