ASDA and WHSmith are the latest retailers to sell copies of The Big Issue in response to the devastating impacts of Covid-19.
You can now buy The Big Issue in 292 ASDA outlets across the UK, and in select WHSmith stores.
The weekly magazine is priced at £3, with 50 per cent of the cover price going direct to our vendors — just like when they sell it on the streets.
The spread of coronavirus meant it was no longer safe for them to continue selling in their usual way — effectively stripping them of their ability to earn a living.
However, in-store sales will allow us to continue to help the homeless and vulnerable people who rely on magazine sales for their income.
