The 2015 general election looks to be one of the most interesting in years – presenting retailers with a fantastic sales opportunity.

Along with a boost in newspaper sales, newsagents can also expect a sales peak in news and current affairs magazines, as people seek out comment and analysis.

Independents can make the most of the heightened interest by dedicating more space to their news and current affairs titles in the lead up to 7 May.

Overall, the sector is worth £33.8m per year, with independents accounting for about 25% of sales, so it is well worth the effort.
