Newsagent threatens protest against distributor

A row is brewing between magazine distributor NDD and newsagents. Victorian newsagent Mark Fletcher has said he was “suspicious” of the way the company distributed the niche publication Box magazine on the last day of the month although it had been out for some time. He complains:  

“That we are given no choice by NDD to carry an obscure title like Box is a problem for our channel and another reason, I suspect, why newsagents choose to not deal with NDD altogether.”

And Fletcher goes further in his battle with NDD over their delivery today of a book – 4 Ingredients 2. Accusign them of “unconscionable conduct“, he threatens:

“We may even rip off the covers and return just those since this is a gross oversupply. By topping the book and returning just the cover we make a statement.  Newsagents have to stop NDD abusing us as has been done in this instance.”
