Do you think electronic scanning at grocery stores has increased or decreased magazine sales? In the pre-electronic age, when grocery stores had long lines, I used to read the magazines kept near check-out. If what I was reading was interesting, and I wasn’t going to get a chance to finish it in-store, I’d toss it in my cart and buy it. Nowadays, the lines move so quickly, I barely have time to unload my cart. And glancing at the magazines’ front covers alone seldom tempts me (and often puts me off). What’s your experience been?
