2002 Best Newsstand

Out of Town News

Truth be told, the magazine racks at the downtown Borders offer as wide a selection as the homegrown newsstands in Harvard and Copley squares. But browsing for magazines and newspapers at chain stores strikes us as a little, well, square. Our winner, then, is Out of Town News, where the choice of reading material is a bit larger than that of the Copley Square stand and where the willingness to take credit cards makes impulse buys (and what else are newsstand sales after all?) that much easier.
