Where does CV belong on the shelf Bob?

I don't really have a regular supplier of CV, i just pick it up where i see it whichis usually in one of many WHSmiths stores. The problem is, that it always takes me a while to find it because staff can't decide whether it's a computer mag, or a video mag - a fair problem i feel...

I used to work in a convinience store and we used planagrams (shelf layouts) to arrange stock on shelves, but the magazine ones were very vague because they had to cover such a huge range.

I was just wandering if CV, distributors, Smiths had an official stance on this... it would save people a fair bit of time and problems with thinking the mag isn't in stock if we knew where to find it.

TIA,
mark.

I shop at any of Bolton, Trafford Centre or Manchester and it is always with computer mags.

The standing instructions, which are ignored by the staff of WH Smith (or, perhaps, not communicated to them), are for CV to be racked near the video titles, not the computer titles.
