SAN FRANCISCO – FEBRUARY 26: Copies of the San Francisco Chronicle are displayed at Nick’s Newsstand February 26, 2010 in San Francisco, California. As the newspaper industry continues to struggle and more people turn to the internet for their news, Nick’s Newsstand closed its doors after more than 30 years of selling newspapers and magazines from a kiosk in downtown San Francisco. Newsstand owner Karim Benkanoun made the decision to close the business after sales plummeted over the past four years causing him to make less than minimum wage.
