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, says the NFRN.

All price increases will include pro rata profit margins for retailers.

NFRN National President Narinder Randhawa 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. 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.”
