i felt that the selection at the place in Evanston was bigger and they seemed better stocked.

Chicago-Main Newstand
860 Chicago (at Main)
(847) 425-8900

but Europa may be worth stopping by just to check out if you're in the area anyway.

I used to think this boutique was such a great place...but now I'm going to think twice about shopping here given how it does business with its labels.
I've thought of going into Jake several times as things looked so cute in the window. Thanks for the info!

Here's the article for people who want to read: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/16/fashion/16JAKE.html

Are you talking about City News Stand? There is also one at 4018 N. Cicero in the city
