News dealers and newsstands are present in Columbus. Newsstands are kiosks which carry newspapers, periodicals and magazines of one or more types. Multiple copies of the same are available, so that many customers can come and buy them. The newsstands get the newspaper copies early in the morning each day. Periodicals and magazines come depending on their publication schedule, be it weekly, fortnightly or monthly. News dealers are the intermediaries between the publisher and the reader. These dealers in Columbus have a distribution system that enables the newspaper to reach the consumers and/or the newsstands, from where the paper can then be bought.
