Newsagents in Australia are performing well and are here to stay.

The lottery and newsagents industry is Australia's largest independent retail and home delivery group. There are over 5,000 independent, family-owned news and lottery agents in Australia and the industry employs more than 20,000 people with a turnover of $6 billion.

The industry plays a vital role in our nation's economy, and news and lottery agents see approximately 2.3 million people every day across Australia.

Our members are optimistic and are buoyed by the success seen as they diversify their offerings or identify new niches. We have not seen a decline of the sector.

Despite sales declines in traditional categories like newspapers, this simply means that the purpose of newsagents and the way they operate is evolving. And the many newsagents that do this are thriving and have embraced longevity.

Newsagents are an important part of every community. When any new shopping centre opens, they seek a newsagent to fill a space in the centre as they are a great drawcard for foot traffic and provide a unique range of products and services. They are friendly faces offering important services, in-demand products, recreation, and community initiatives. And as newsagents continue to evolve and adapt to changing conditions, the industry further proves its value and cements its position in the future of retail.
