SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah)- After more than 120 years in business the Utah-Idaho Supply/Map World store is closing its doors.

The local business was supplied educators with textbook, teaching aids, office supplies, games, and maps since the late 1890s. 

“At one point, Utah-Idaho operated five retail locations and a catalog for teachers. But in recent years, online competition and the availability of educational aids at big box stores have cut into retail sales,” a press release said. 

Over the next month the last three locations in Layton, West Jordan, and Lindon will be closing.
