Free State Press, a printing business in Four Corners a few doors down from Red Maple, will have closed its doors by the time you read this.
“It’s a good location,” said Mr. P. Chong, the owner, “but the economics are bad, [with] high rent.”
The business, which has been in that location 30 years, doesn’t seem to have changed with the times.
“The rent has gone up and many customers are gone now,” said Chong. Other printers are “using computers” now, which he never has.
“I can’t make money,” he said.
Chong is moving the equipment to a “home office” in Columbia, Md., where he sounded hopeful he can still get some business. ■
