  1. Hello Lassa,
    I would be very interested in carrying Culture magazine at our shop. Could you please advise on setting me up for direct sales. (Am already an at-home subscriber).
    Question… would the free shipping also apply to Canada?
    Will await your consideration and directions.
    Thanks so much!
