Newsagents Plan To Boycott Daily Star

Following the Daily Star's recent price cut, newsagents have announced plans to boycott the title.

Newsagents across the country are planning to stop selling the Daily Star, in protest of the planned price cut for the title.

The title, which is published by Northern and Shell, is set to halve in price.

At the current price of 40p per issue, newsagents receive 9.68p per copy sold.

If the price cut goes ahead, newsagents will only receive half of that figure.

The National Newsagent Network (N3), a group of 12 newsagents nationwide, has decided to stop stocking Star titles.


Brian Murphy, N3 director of news, said: “This is an unwilling step by N3 which has been created to improve the trading strength and profitability of its members. But at the same time, N3 is not going to stand idly by whilst publishers slash its members margins to fund price promotions.”

Ray Monelle, chairman of N£, said:  “N3 is in the business of making money for its members and business partners by adopting the highest standards of retail to increase sales.  But we are not a cash cow for publishers who want to use retailers to fund price wars on their competitors.

“Meagre retailer margins have to fund operating overheads, wages and ever-increasing carriage charges.  Whilst this action is not our preferred choice of doing business, it was not a difficult decision for the N3 Board to delist titles offering uneconomic terms of trade.”
