News dealers distribute newspapers and advertisements for publishers. Products can be sold through retail stands, or vending machines. Others deliver directly to subscribing residential or commercial customers on established routes.
So selling periodicals, magazines, and the daily paper requires having a commercial insurance. In today’s day and age the answer is yes. So newsstand operators and business owners should understand there is more than one form of coverage when choosing liability insurance to protect their earnings.
The classic newsstand of decades past is mostly gone. Magazine racks in supermarkets, convenience stores, department stores and pharmacies are truncated places, replaced with book-a-zines, gum racks and other products.
