Tyndale Ends Exclusive Distribution in the UK

Earlier this month, UK booksellers found out via an American trade website that Tyndale House was moving from an exclusive distribution arrangement with Trust Media Distribution to a distribution model that includes Trust Media along with Christian Literature Crusade and InterVarsity Press. Here in Canada, exclusive distribution deals are normative, but as far back as 1989, Triwel Publishing, which was then the #2 distributor in Canada, was pushing to see the Canadian market open up with independent distributors such as Spring Arbor (now Ingram), Riverside and Anchor.

Does the UK paradigm shift open up similar possibilities for Canada? The population difference and cultural plurality of Canada make it unlikely, but much depends on how both consumers and retailers find out about forthcoming products.
