Newsstand Return

Newsstand Return

Copies of a magazine or other periodical remaining at the end of a publication cycle. The newsstand return is the unsold portion of the newsstand draw. The newsstand return is given back to the publisher. Because publishers cannot earn income from unsold periodicals, they try to keep the newsstand return as low as possible. It is abbreviated as N/S return.
