Snuggled into a space, two steps down and half a block from Piedmont Ave's main drag is the newest member of the Avenue community: Issues. Issues' main focus is newspapers and magazines (mainstream, indie, and bizarre), with a smattering of music, t-shirts, cute tchotchkas, and anything else that the young, sweet owner-couple (Noella and Joe) feel works for the store. This is one of those places that you desperately want to survive because it fills an important niche and because you know the owners are pouring their heart, soul, money, and time into it. The best part is that it is a FUN store to be in. On the eve of their one-month anniversary, they hosted a cheese and cracker hour for loyal patrons. Feel free to go in and browse, take a seat, and explore a new magazine, or ask either owner for a recommendation. Bring your dog for a yummy biscuit and support this important community business.
