Asked to comment to the editor of a trade journal today about the GNS decision to ban newsXpress from its trade shows, the Board issued this statement today:
newsXpress is disappointed that the Board of GNS has taken this action against newsXpress. Now is the time for newsagents and their suppliers to embrace competition rather than build walls against it.
We have been active supporters of GNS since we commenced six years ago and have participated in the Brisbane Market Fair since we began. To now be locked out on the grounds of newsXpress being a threat is disappointing and offensive to our newsagent members.
