2013 1st Half

Posted by admin On November - 5 - 2013

Retail dollar sales were down 12.2% for the first half of 2013 versus same period prior year, says Glenn Morgan, President & CEO of Coast to Coast Newsstand Service.  These figures were compiled by PMC.

So if you have been noticing softness in your newsstands sales, you are not alone.  It appears that cuts to dealers and cuts to draws, as wholesalers look to cut fixed costs of delivery, may in fact be contributing to the loss of sales.
