Starting this week, 100 Chemist Warehouse stores in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia will sell News Corp’s metro mastheads, The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, The Courier Mail and The Advertiser.
The two companies have partnered on a trial run until July 2020, which may extend to 400 stores nationwide.
Lia Heim, group marketing manager at Chemist Warehouse highlighted the importance of supporting another essential service.
“As an essential service ourselves, the ability to provide our customers with another essential service within our stores, that being trusted newspapers, means that shoppers can minimise their travel within the local community whilst remaining updated and informed,” Heim said.
Lou Barrett, managing director of national sales for News Corp Australia said: “We’re always looking for new ways to assist our clients and their customers and given we’ve seen a spike in audience demand for our products, it makes perfect sense to have them available for sale in Chemist Warehouse stores.”
