^My local newagents is starting to get some foreign magazines in for me, after I asked them.
They are proud of the business and get credited for ordering magazines in, so they should welcome you with open arms.
Most of them arrive shrinkwrapped and in immaculate condition which is a bonus.
I once tried that - a request for one copy of French Elle each week - and they kept writing my name in pen at the top of each issue. I know they were only trying to make sure it was reserved, but if I really wanted my name written on the front of a magazine every week, I'd become a celebrity.
As a schoolgirl, I once went to my local newsagents to ask them to restock the one issue of Vogue Paris that they'd stopped getting in. "There's no demand for it," I was told, even though I was specifically asking for it - not being demanding enough, it seems. I'm still bitter, it was around 1992, who knows what supermodel magic I missed with those issues?
