Fog City News in San Francisco’s Financial District will close permanently on New Year’s Eve. It opened 22 years ago when its business model was already on shaky ground.
Where most newsstands have a couple dozen magazines, Fog City News, at 445 Market St., offers customers more than 1,200 titles. It has more than 1,000 greeting cards on display — at least 100 of which contain a swear word, I'm told. Zero of its products are available for purchase online, harkening back to the good old days when one had to — dare we say — set foot inside a brick-and-mortar store for reading materials.
