Burda Style 01/2018
« on: January 02, 2018, 20:48:21 PM »
January Burda Style was supposed to be available in the UK from 22/12/17. I have it reserved for me at my local WHSmith and when I went to collect it today found that they hadn't had it delivered. I was told that the next one would be available on the 19th January with no explanation as to what had happened to the January edition. I know that this has happened before which is why I decided to get it reserved but as they didn't receive any last month reserving is no help!

Has anyone seen a copy at their local store? Just wondered whether this is a nationwide thing or whether it's just Plymouth. Also, does anyone have it on subscription? I assume that subscribers received their copies, I think I might consider subscribing in future  :(

I ordered the January copy in December from Unique magazines and it arrived a few days ago!

I have.  Mine is quite a big branch and it carries copies of all the sewing titles, although Burda and Ottobre will number no more than five.

Thanks, I've just ordered a copy from Unique magazines but I'm reluctant to take out a subscription as it's not difficult for me to pop into town to collect the reserved one and that end of town is almost shut up these days, it would be a bit sad if Smiths left too.  I'm just a bit annoyed that this isn't the first time it's happened, I can only suppose that if the UK distribution centre is short that Plymouth is bottom of the list to be supplied.  I think I might send WHSmith an email about it as it's really not on to ignore pre-paid ordered copies. The daft thing is, I don't really make many items from the magazines, but I do like to look at them and dream...

Passed through my local branch of Smiths' and there was only a single copy of January's Burda style left on the shelf, but as I said before, there is never more than five in store.

Mine usually has Burda but I have to practically fight for Ottobre. Last time I was in there a lady picked up the last copy. Then she put it back down on the rack. I picked it up and she shouted at me saying it was hers! Then she left without buying it anyway?! It's a war!

I hardly ever see Ottobre, occasionally the kids one is there but I have only ever seen the adult version once.

They only release two (or is it three?) adult issues a year so it's rarely about.

Our local WHS didn't have any at all.

One copy left today.  Burda style does sell otherwise my local Smiths' wouldn't carry it but once they're gone, that's it.
