Hi Ayça,

In my opinion, you would use the term  'marchand de journaux' for an establishment that sells newspapers, magazines, comics, etc. like a kiosk.

The term ' librairie' which is a book shop or a newsagent will sell both books and newspapers and items of stationery.

In the exercise, this is a shop and the owner is called 'le libraire' which didn't shock me in the slightest.

Hope this helps!
