A first-rate service for retailers
The service we provide to retailers includes daily delivery of newspapers and magazines with the majority being provided on a sale or return basis.
We collect newspaper returns six days of the week, and four days for magazines. These are processed daily in order to give prompt credit, and enhance cash flow for our customers.
We provide back office support and our customer service teams are on-hand throughout the day to provide help when needed. Our copy management service helps with stock decisions, allocating quantities on the basis of accurate forecasts of demand in store.
Selling newspapers and magazines makes good business sense, for retailers of every size. These fast-moving consumer goods help draw customers into a store, and their attractive margins ensure they make a healthy contribution to profitability. In fact News and Magazines are one of the biggest footfall drivers for convenience retailers.
We provide a suite of solutions that help retailers maximise their profit from newspapers and magazines.
We support our retailers in driving sales growth and maximising profitability, so that they can enjoy the full benefits of selling print publications in store.
Kate owns an independent newsagents in Upton-Upon-Severn, Worcestershire. Kate’s not the only newspaper and magazine retailer on the main high street, but she strives to be the best and works hard to get to know her customers."
Kate’s a member of Smiths News’ Premier Club and enjoys many of the club’s benefits. This includes taking advantage of the exclusive Premier Club promotions and using the advice from the monthly category management pack so she can focus on the different ways she can increase her magazines and newspaper sales. Talking about being a Premier Club, Kate said:
“I would recommend Premier Club to other retailers. Because my staff and I know what many of our customers like to read we are able to promote the most suitable Premier Club titles to them, so we get the most of out the exclusive promotions and offers.”
“I have trained my staff on how to use Premier Club’s category management pack because I think it’s important that they understand how they use it and which magazines they need to promote to our customers when I’m not working in the store.”
