WHS in Manchester Piccadilly Train Station.

I can only seem to find it in WHS branches in Manc land.

WH Smiths. Only place I know of that always gets it in. Plenty of copies too. Bottom tier of mags right at the back, have to crouch down to see it.

Why do they do that? My WHS does the same as well.

Wonder how much it costs to get one of those display case things in the mag section?

In line with everyone else, usually in WHSmiths.

Not that its due to a lack of looking for it everywhere else I go though. Our local Tesco used to have it but I've not seen a copy in there for a few months.

Either RG is (quite rightly) flying off the shelves as soon as it comes in....everywhere, or its being seriously under-distributed. Very few places seem to carry it, which is a shame if its not reaching the broader audience it deserves.

Yeah, Smiths is the only place I know of round here that carries it.

WH SMITHS - again, as other people have said, seems to be the only newsagent that stocks it. Even the big Asda superstore here which has recently started stocking Edge, still does not stock Retro Gamer.

I am happy to stick with WHS though as I get loads of the 'Spend £20 get £3 on your clubcard' vouchers in my email box off them and use my clubcard constantly.
As requested by the Tw@t himself - his account was Hijacked and has had a change of password.

Sorry Dexter!
