“It’s only right that a newspaper building has newspapers for sale,” owner Allen Strong said.

Strong’s love of newspapers started at an early age, when he delivered the Champaign-Urbana Courier. When he opened the Courier Cafe, he made sure to keep the newspaper’s history a part of it, from framed front pages on the inside to a mural highlighting Courier alums Roger Ebert, Bob Novak, Gene Shalit and George Will on the outside.
