Re: “DeLauer's Former Owner Dies

Chris, You got it 100% right. He tended to business and was at peace with his time to go. Thank you for your post and always being so supportive. Sharon De Lauer, granddaughter

Re: “Downtown Oakland Delauer's Newsstand Closing

Dear Young, I am very sorry for the closing of your company. Maybe if someone HAD come to the aid of your company aid would have a more positive and supportive view of an entire community coming together to save an Oakland Historical Landmark. The city of Oakland is now putting together a plan to clean up that part of Oakland. Hopefully individuals and wonderful workers like yourself that most likely got up before dawn to go to work will have a better experience on the streets of Oakland, and outside DeLauers. EVERYONE is benefiting! Thank you for the hard work you obviously put in with your old company, and for sharing your bit of history with us. You are very appreciated!

Re: “Downtown Oakland Delauer's Newsstand Closing

DeLauer's Super Newsstand was started by Charles DeLauer senior in 1907 as a pushcart on an Oakland corner. The corner newsstand grew so big that they were taking over all of 12th street! Bill Noland, Tribune owner asked the Delauers to "move it inside, people cant walk down the street!". Charles Delauer Jr. took over the business after the death of his father during the depression. DeLauer's Super Newsstand is an icon and Oakland institution. Please pray for a reprieve as the city is trying to save the store. Then you can get your Iceberg Slim novels at midnight again! ;-)
