i cant find Kerrang magzaine in stores lately.. any know why?

I'm hoping someone on here might know more about this. For weeks now I've been looking for a store that sells kerrang magazine. I used to get it from Asda or newsagents and they never have it in anymore, been to a few places and they don't seem to have it either. Can't see online that it's stopped. Is it just I'm going when they have sold out or are they stopping it? I'm horrified if they are! lol

last year I ordered them direct from the publisher with delivery. I think I paid 70 for 52 copies.

Oo ok that's a lot cheaper then I expected! Don't think I want it every week though :-/ depends what/who is in it really

"I can't find Kerrang magazine in stores lately... any know why?

I could guess:-

The Internet.
Only 4K sold per month so taking up valuable shelf space.
it's 2017, not the 80s.


The German publishers will probably kill it off soon!

Have you tried Tesco? We usually get it from there. Also if I go into my local newsagents and ask them, they will order me a copy of a magazine and it arrives within a couple of days. Maybe worth a try?

I guess they mean people used to read more physical copies of stuff in the 90s compared to now

​I bought Kerrang in the 80s when it was in its prime I think and had a good circulation. Expect it to be killed off in print form due to low circulation figures?

​4K a month I believe? I could be totally wrong. I doubt that's sustainable. 10x would probably be sustainable.

The main problem isn't lack of people reading, just lack of people reading the physical copy.

No probs, I've also got them from my local Sainsburys before too. If you really struggle, I wonder if you contacted them to see which shops they supply the magazine to?
