The article focuses on issues related to the publications newsstand industry, with reference to Southern Tier News Co., a wholesale distributor of periodicals based out of Elmira Heights, New York, that was able to analyze where the competition was succeeding and adapt their businesses according to it. The company owns three newsstands in New York that each carry between 80 and 100 running feet of magazines, plus a selection of paperback and hardcover books and out-of-town newspapers. The evolution of adding convenience products to the Southern Tier stores, which operate under the Mayer's and Rubin's names, began in 1978 when the company bought up an old tobacco shop and converted it into its Ithaca, New York newsstand.
