I have fond memories of popping into what might be the premiere location in Chicago to buy magazines, the Six Corners City News Stand located on Cicero near Irving Park Road. I’m pretty sure the place is still kicking although I’m sure that they don’t carry the same number of table top gaming related mags as they once did. Honestly, I don’t think there’s a single U.S. based mass market magazine still being sold so I wouldn’t be shocked if they didn’t carry any.
