Best shave around.

[edit: The soap and the store both have "Nubian" in their name, the store sells the soap, but I don't think they're the manufacturer, and I'm sure the soap will continue to be available elsewhere. It really is pretty awesome soap, in any case.]

Many of the commenters on here are clear proof that, no, people do not read the actual articles anymore.

In the first quarter of 2017, the convenience store will close. Sharif Abdal-Khallaq says he will open the gift shop in a new location with its familiar stock of silver bangles, essential oils and incense.

“We’re not going out of business,” he said. “We’re going out of the convenience business.”

One option that often gets overlooked is having the employees form a worker co-op to buy the business and keep it going. There are organizations that can help with the transition. It may not be too late!

Good for the kids. Their family(s) worked hard to allow them the choice to do something different with their lives.
