Big box stores and the internet have taken a lot of business away from small independently owned stores in America and here in Yakima as well.

After 115 years of providing local businesses with supplies the Yakima Bindery is closing at the end of the week. Store officials say both the internet and large stores have taken business away from the Bindery forcing it to close the retail store. A major clearance sale is being held Monday and continues through Friday.
While the Bindery is closing it's retail side of the business it is keeping open the Bindery printing business.
