After 97 years of business in Evansville, Schmitt Photo Service and Scrapbook Central will be closing next month.
Company President Stephen Polley says it's a voluntary closing because of a drastic decline in business. Polley said over the past five years retail conditions for small independent businesses have never been more difficult.
Polley told 14 News the last day of business will be February 28th.
