Is there a store that has them from France and Italy or do I need to search in the North End stores individually?
Harvard Square is still your best although supposedly the out-of-town news stand right in the center of the square was closing two years ago (makes me realize I probably haven't been to Harvard Square in at least two years, which is weird). Most people just read european magazines and newspapers online now - it's really killing off the import business. I imagine there are places in the north end that have italian magazines and newspapers, still, but I haven't looked for them in ages.
If you get no other suggestions, you could go to Schoenhof's bookstore in Harvard Square and see what they have there:
if they don't carry periodicals (haven't been there in ages either ) you could ask who does nearby, or anywhere in the Boston area.
Aren't they available in Detroit?
I was thinking of Out of Town News but apparently they closed up shop.Edited: 24 July 2010, 20:44
I think Out of Town News is still there. They came pretty close to closing a couple of times, but I'm pretty sure they didn't. I drive by there every week or two and I'm pretty sure they are open. If they are open that is your best bet. It is right in the middle of Harvard Square and is a landmark. Maybe you should call them first to make sure they are open and have what you want.
Out of Town News is still open.
We do frequent a few ethnic stores where we find them, but they are really dated (several months old) and the selection is very limited to two or three.
Newslaw - You just showed me a new feature; didn't know you could do that on Yelp; thanks for the tip and education.Edited: 25 July 2010, 13:59
