I'm a sucker for magazines. I absolutely love them. When I first discovered Al's News in Old Town Fort Collins, it was love at first sight. They just have so many magazines! They also sell tobacco products. While they don't interest me, they do make the place smell great! The combination of paper, tobacco and popcorn (they sell it fresh-popped!) make for a distinct smell that hasn't changed in the last 10 years. Every time I walk in I notice the smell and then get lost in the endless wall of magazines. If heaven sold magazines, the shop would be just like Al's News.

Love this place. It's small and feels old fashioned cozy. Amazingly well stocked with newspapers, magazines, books, calendars, gifts. Friendly staff. Kinda of a throw-back in a really good way.
