Cool.

I see the new issue of Retro Gamer is in Sainsburys in Exeter (Pinhoe store). It was easy to see too. Good way of getting new readers me thinks.

Yep, I noticed it in my local Sainsbury's (Shirley, Solihul). Makes no difference to me as a subber, but welcoming to see it in a big supermarket alongside more main-stream games mags. Can only be a good thing. :D

The fact that Sainsbury's are now selling Retro Gamer is a joy to me because it means that I now don't have to go out of where I live to grab a copy!

Plus, it's only just up the road where I live, and I work there part-time too!

I've not seen RG in my local Sainsburys yet (Torquay) or the Taunton store.

Still to see that its started selling in Sainsburys is promising.

I guess it depends on the size of the store and what sells in your local area. Most WHSmith stores around here sell Retro Gamer, including the tiny one in Fleet, and our local Sainsbury's (a pretty large one) stocks it, as does the utterly gargantuan Tesco, located in a place somewhat ironically called "The Meadows" (well, it was before you built two whacking great big supermarkets there, thoughtless naming committee).

My town's (Farnham) WH Smith has it but its accross the other side from my office and I'm a lazy git!

But now it will be delivered to my door, giving the task of walking to someone else! :D

My Local Tesco (stevenage) used to sell it until a couple of months ago now they don't. Obviously I was the only one buying it.
