One Newspaper at a TimeDecatur Metro | June 6, 2010
Here’s a question no one would have asked 10 years ago: where can one purchase a national newspaper in Decatur?
I’ve subscribed to weekend home delivery of the New York Times for the past year or so, but the whole arrangement is beginning to feel like a chore that I pay over $40 a month to take on. Especially on days when I don’t have time to sit down with that $6 Sunday monster, it just screams “waste of money!” from its place on the coffee table.
I yearn for a much less demanding relationship with my hard-copy. To simply pick up a bundle of ink at the corner market on days when I have both the time and energy. But of coarse, Decatur doesn’t really have a corner market. So, beyond Starbucks, I’m not really sure where else you can pick up a New York Times or a Wall Street Journal or a USA Today. (Can you even still get all of those at Starbucks?)
Are there other options of which I’m just blindly unaware?
