Now, this is just downright low. After more than a century of peddling Gauloises and Le Figaro from its sweet spot in downtown Oakland, DeLauers Super Newsstand is fixin' to close its doors this very week! According to the Oakland Tribune, chain stores and this thing called the Interets did a number on the business, and founder, 91-year-old Charles DeLauer, is too sick to keep up the good fight. Still, we're left with two questions. One: how can a 91-year-old man have founded a store more than 100 years old? And two: where the hell are we gonna get our Iceberg Slim novels now?
