With supply challenges all but resolved, sales of jigsaws are strong in newsagencies that have decided to continue with this category. Having an evolving range is key as is overing over the phone purchase as well as online purchase. Jigsaws also continue to be a popular locally delivered item. This has been an excellent category for us this year.

    Yes we too are experiencing strong growth in games and puzzles. Currently up by 316 per cent for the financial ytd. Yes tis great that the supply issues are now sorted. In this new world of travel restrictions and digital overload people are looking for other forms of entertainment. Books are also booming.

    Great to hear Steve. I agree on Books, too. What a terrific category! Based on what we have heard this week on overseas travel, I expect these categories will do well into 2021 for us.
