I am lucky - we have 3 LSS with 30 mins of me. 2 of them are wonderful - the other is very large but doesn't seem to carry as many of the tools and supplies. I love going to all of them but the other 2 are definitely my favorites!!
As for mags - I think it's sad to see them end. I too like to have the paper version. For me - it's more convenient to use!
