(Newser) – Harvard Square will most likely soon lose the iconic newsstand that has operated there for 50 years, the Cambridge Chronicle reports. The lease for Out of Town News expires at the end of the month, and the business has declined to renew it because of poor sales. “Nobody buys newspapers anymore,” commented the stand’s general manager. “People are reading everything online mostly.”
