Ordering German Magazines

German Magazine Covers

Lately, I have heard rumours that a certain store in Ontario that allowed Canadians to order German magazines shut down and suddenly I was getting phone calls from people who wanted German Magazines, such as “Der Spiegel”, “Das Neue Blatt” or “Freizeitrevue” or even “Die Neue Post”.

Then I discovered that my parents were able to order German magazines through a company in New Jersey and have it sent to a Post Office Box in Bellingham. They just have to cross the border every month to pick it up.

GLP News in New Jersey

Since other people are most likely interested in this, I asked them for more information and found out about “GLP News” Zeitschriften aus Deutschland in 153 S. Dean Street, Englewood, NJ 07631. They offer International First Class Shipping, but it costs $383 US for 6-months and $193 US for 3-months. So this is good for people who don’t want to have to travel to the US, but have the cash to spend.

Here is one item from their frequently asked questions (Servicefragen) from the GLP News Store online:

Kann das Abo in Euro bezahlt werden?

Black Forest Deli in West Vancouver

Another option I heard is the Black Forest Deli in West Vancouver, who has a few German magazines for sale. They can be found in the Park Royal Mall. http://www.shopparkroyal.com/store/black-forest-delicatessen/ Of course they don’t have as big of a selection.

  1. GLP News just shut down without notifying any of their subscribers. We just renewed 3 magazines and when I spoke to them on 4/24/19, they did not tell me about the closing. Their website states that somebody else is taking over but they don’t state a name or a telephone number. Not a very good business behavior!!! Will dispute all charges.

    1. Hi Hiltrud, GLP magazine also stated: We ask for your patience for a few weeks until the deliveries and mailings can resume. Thank you for your support.” Hopefully it will all work out smoothly.

    2. same happened to me after 20 years. Now I am searching. I have tried to order through Amazon but still have not received my magazine.

  2. I had not been notified as to the shutdown. Was wondering why I had not received my Brigitte Magazine for nearly two months. Now that I perused the websites (and it was well hidden) I understand. I hope the changeover will happen soon. I need my Brigitte fix!

  3. Does anyone know a forwarding address for GLP news?
    I have 7 paid subscriptions with them. The new shipper only can send one magazine, they do not caary the other. Calling and e-mailing GLP did not get results, they closed their accounts!!

  4. I am a knitter and knit mostly from my Verena magazine. I paid in February for a year ahead and then they closed GLP news. How long do I have to wait? Will I have my money back if they wont renew it? Or it is gone fore ver? Few weeks became few months already.

  5. I just renewed my National Geographic in April, 2019. I received the May, 2019 issue and then no more. At first, when I went to the GLP website, I had hope that the delivery would be only delayed and then resumed. However, I just communicated with the representative at Roltek, the successor distributor, and they advised me that there would be no magazine delivery and no refund.

  6. As of July 2019, you can get Stern, Tina, Freizeit Revue, Brigitte, Brigitte Woman, Burda Style German, Vogue, Auto Motor und Sport, Neue Post, Bunte etc.

    As of August 2019, you can get Das Neue, Kochen und Geniessen, Geolino, Lustiges Taschenbuch, P.M., Meine Familie und ich, Lisa Kochen & Backen, Burda Plus German, Geo Mein Schoener Garten, Freizeit Revue Raetsel, Freundin etc.

    You can call 1-877-776-5835 or e-mail service@roltek.com. Roltek is a subscription management company and Sunrise News handles Canadian mailing and retail distribution for German language magazines and will be taking over retail distribution in the USA.

    1. Yes they will deliver but the money that we have spent with Glp that is gone the new company will give a few free magazines if you renew for a year.

  7. Good Afternoon,
    writing from the UK, I had subscribed to Frau im Spiegel to be delivered to a recipient in the US as a gift, eventually the recipient pointed out that the magazine had not been received for quite a few weeks. Considering the good service received over a number of years, the treatment on the closing of the service and lack of information who took this distribution on is appalling. Who is in charge of the outstanding refunds of the subscriptions, where did the funds go and why has there not been a written explanation on the next provider. Not impressed who has my payment data?
