Magazine Distribution for California
You are here >   About Us


Established in 1985, Newsways Distributors has grown from a small "supplemental" magazine wholesaler to one of the largest independent magazine wholesalers in the US. From our base in Southern California, Newsways services by way of its regional distribution centers product to over 2,000 retailers throughout the state and beyond each week. Most major California cities are serviced, including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Bakersfield, Fresno, plus locations in Arizona, Nevada and Oregon.


Throughout this extended period of growth, Newsways has not lost sight of the independent retailer, and treats every retail situation uniquely. Our field staff is trained to ensure that each retailer receives the appropriate title mix and quantities to maximize sales and efficiencies. In most cases, Newsways hand-delivers our magazines and books to the stores we service - providing in-store racking, merchandising and on-site returns processing.

Newsways services a wide range of retail operations including supermarket chains, airport concessions, newsstands, convenience stores, book stores, office building concessions and independent liquor stores. Among our exclusive chain retailers are 7-Eleven, Gelson’s Supermarkets, Lunardi's Supermarkets, Circle K, Pacific Gateway, Super A Foods and more. Newsways circulates over 1,000 different magazine titles as well as paperback books, trade paper books and hardback books. All in all, we handle over 400,000 units and run 250 routes every week.

Our retail customers are increasingly pleased with the timeliness in which their accounts are serviced. The publishers whose titles we deliver are equally pleased to see that their valuable product is where it should be, selling efficiently and in the right accounts. As result of customer satisfaction and positive word of mouth, Newsways continues to grow in the California marketplace.
