What is National Newsagent Week?

National Newsagent Week is an opportunity for the community to come together and show their appreciation of their local newsagent and the contribution they make to the local area, and for newsagents across the country to celebrate and thank their customers.

The magazine publishers are wholeheartedly behind National Newsagent Week.  They worked together to create a nationwide competition for anyone who purchased a magazine from their Newsagent during National Newsagent Week 2019.  They are hoping to do the same in 2020!

Greetings Cards

Greetings cards are a great way to inspire, surprise or make someone laugh. Whether it’s a funny card for a friend, a special occasion or a 21st in the coming weeks, let someone know you are thinking about them.

John Sands had a great offer at participating newsagents during National Newsagent Week 2019 – buy a JS greetings card and receive a free Cello Wrap.   What will be on offer in 2020?!


Whether you have kids at school, you are a student or you are running a business, your friendly newsagent is there to help with all your stationery needs.

Do you need a present for a children’s birthday party, or a christening or maybe you simply want to thank a friend?  Many newsagents are now stocking a great range of gifts to cater for all occasions.  You may find a locally sourced product, or something a little bit different or something that is all the rage!  Visit your newsagent  and you will be inspired!

Your Newsagent, Your Community Heartbeat

There’s more to your local newsagent than access to news and lotteries. Your community concierge – you’ll find a range of hard-to-come-by services, not to mention a selection of items for sale you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.

Newsagents have been getting behind the communities they serve for decades: giving back and bringing people together. So, support your local newsagent, and be a part of something bigger.
