The internet and social media can be a wonderful thing… however, while having the world right at your finger tips has its (major) advantages, it has also come with a major downfall, as it has greatly hurt other outlets like broadcast news, magazines, and newspapers. Fortunately for us in Colorado, we still have access to some of these other “vintage” news outlets, via this awesome old-time newsstand:

Please note, Al’s Newsstand has permanently closed.

Located in Fort Collins, Al’s Newsstand and Tobacco Shop is one of the few remaining newsstands in Colorado that has been serving the community for nearly 70 years! Housed inside a vintage Old Town storefront, Al’s offers patrons not only 3,500 magazines and newspapers, but an impressive selection of gift items, tobacco products, comic books, books, maps, and so much more! When you visit, plan to take some time perusing the many titles, inhaling the sweet scent of fresh ink, and devouring some of their oh-so-buttery popcorn.
