TUCSON, Ariz. - After more then 50 years Tucson's Map and Flag Center will be 'dramatically downsizing.'

The business took to Facebook to say there are many reasons why it has to downsize, but the main one is the market for maps.

Employees say, the market for maps seems to be strongest among people over the age of 45, and 'millenials' aren't interested.

The business also adds delivery companies using cellphone maps to schedule deliveries has hurt their business as well.

They are reducing their map stock and physical size of their store, potentially leading to a complete closure of the store.
