Distribution

Random question but hope this makes sense:

Can anyone do anything about the appaling distribution network for purchasing the magazine and bookazines in store? I subscribe but getting bookazines etc is an absolute pain and subscribing to the mag seems to be essential in order to actually get a copy consistently

I can't help you with this I'm afraid but can look into it.
With regards to finding bookazines. WHSmiths apparently ship to key stores, which then ship to others. That's the reason why it can take so long to go on sale in some locations. That's obviously out of our control.

Ah, that explains things. Thanks for looking into it, Darran, even though the end result is that nothing can be done from the Imagine side. Bloody 'Smiths :D
