The downtown spot for newspapers, magazines and other reads has a new home. Main Street News recently moved to 520 South Main Street, across from its former location, now occupied by Trends on Main. Owner Josh Flechtner hopes to turn the business into downtown’s one-stop shop for news and computer needs.
The business will have the same access to the Sunday editions of larger city newspapers such as those from New York, Cleveland and Columbus. But Flechtner, an IT professional, also offers computer repair that includes upgrades and virus removal.
He also plans to offer Wi-Fi access and is hoping to offer freshly-brewed gourmet coffee soon. “I’m trying to migrate away from being just a bookstore towards being an Internet café and bookstore,” he says.
The shop is open Monday through Thursday from 8am to 6pm, Fridays from
8am to 8pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 7am to 3pm. 520 S. Main St.
