The Federation of Independent Retailers (NFRN) has welcomed the decision by news publisher JPI Media to include pro rata terms for newsagents as part of price increases for its local and regional titles.

From December 27 and throughout January 2022, a total of 177 editions across England, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland will go up by 5p or 10p.

All price increases will include pro rata profit margins for retailers, and all vouchers submitted after the increase will be credited fully at the new cover price.

NFRN National President said: “This is great news and a timely New Year boost for thousands of retailers.

“When publishers put the prices of their titles up, there is always a danger that retailers will suffer because of reduced profits, which has recently been the case with Newsquest. But it is pleasing to see that our calls for fairness have been heeded by JPI.

“We encourage our members to get behind these important local community titles and look forward to building on this with JPI.”
