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:

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.
