I've been calling all over town trying to find a place to buy out of town newspapers. Specifically, I'm looking for the Washington Post. Even the News Stands I've called don't seem to carry it. I even tried News Stands at the airports. Does anyone know whether there is still a place in Dallas to buy out of town newspapers? I want the actual paper, not the online version or databases. I can get it at the Dallas Public Library but they don't sell newspapers, understandably.

Since you don't want the online version, I'd subscribe to it and have it mailed to me... have done this in past for a specific paper I couldn't find here.

However, here is a great virtual online site where all the major newspapers are listed/accessible:

City Newsstand's Virtual Newsstand -- Newspapers

Barnes and Noble carried them a few years ago. Might check with them to see if they still do.

I called all the bookstores: Barnes & Noble, Borders, Half Price, B. Dalton, Waldenbooks, and none of them carry the Washington Post. I called some of the large hotels both downtown and at DFW airport. This forum is my last ditch attempt at finding something. I guess I'm amazed that you can no longer find out of town newspapers, even at the airports. Thanks for the suggestions so far.

I too thought I had seen them at Barnes & Noble and even at the airport newstands. HMMM........... I'm wondering if access to the internet is one reason why publications have stopped making their print available in other markets.

I don't know if this will help, but the Post has an online e-replica - not the online site, but the actual paper scanned in:

The Washington Post

Unfortunately, you have to subscribe to see anything beyond the first page.

For retailers, selling out-of-town newspapers was never very profitable and it's been becoming even less so in the age of the Internet. Not to mention, newspapers take up a lot of space.

For newspapers, where cutting back has been the rule the last few years, circulation outside their normal distribution area was a luxury, not a necessity.

Combine that with the fact that one of the big distributors for out-of-town and foreign newspapers (based out of Atlanta I believe) went under a few years back, it's become much harder to find out-of-town papers anywhere, not just in DFW.

Stores in DFW don' t carry out of town newspapers, because the world evolves around DFW.

Everyone knows that!!!!

j/k

I think your best bet would be call the Morning News, I am sure thats where the out of town papers are printed anyway. And then distributed wherever!

might try the shops at the airport although I don't know that you can get there w/o boarding pass
might try hotels around the airport to see if their lobbies have oot newspapers to sell
bookstores don't carry many out of town papers but NY Times on Sunday might be something they would have

or order one of them from the NY Times or Post--
would take time to get here but you know the outcome anyway
