Map Store Declares Bankruptcy, Closes

A map store in Tampa Bay declared bankruptcy; MAPSource, the last map store in the area, closed its three stores and printing plant. The owner cited “a definite malaise in the map industry as a whole” and the rise of Internet and GPS mapping. But according to the article, MAPSource’s focus was on “maps for service industries, utility companies and government entities,” which unless I’m mistaken would be facing pressures other than retail or consumer trends. Enlighten me if I’m wrong. Via All Points Blog.
