This means that when the cover price rises to 80p on Monday (March 29) that stockists will earn 17.85p for every copy sold. This equates to an extra 2p per copy, says the NFRN.

Commenting, NFRN National President Stuart Reddish said: “We are pleased that the Daily Mail is recognising the tremendous efforts that news retailers have gone to throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to get the newspaper into readers’ hands.

“For everyone operating within the news industry, it has been a remarkably challenging time and we would like to thank Mail Newspapers for maintaining the retail margin.

“Coming off the back of recent announcements of carriage charge freezes, this is really good news. The NFRN applauds the Daily Mail for supporting news retailers by maintaining terms.”
