At least one Toronto store to sell next Charlie Hebdo edition
The French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is going straight back to its business with plans to publish 3 million copies of its edition this week in the wake of an attack on its Paris offices that left 12 people dead.
The magazine normally sells about 30,000 copies per week.
The cover will feature a caricature of the prophet Mohammed with a tear on his cheek and holding a sign that read “Je suis Charlie.”
So where can you buy the latest issue of Charlie Hebdo?
There’s at least one store in Toronto that is hoping to get just a few dozen copies.
“It’s very in demand right now because of what happened in Paris,” Cathy Ola, a spokesperson for Gateway Newstands at Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue said in an interview Monday.
“Every time the phone rings people ask about Charlie Hebdo, are we going to have it, or if we can reserve it for them.”
The store is compiling a waitlist as people call to try to reserve a copy.
The newspaper seller generally gets seven copies of the magazine each week when only 60,000 copies are published. However, the store receives the magazine the week after its original publication date.
