SALISBURY, Md.- The rise of Internet-based transactions and electronic communication is the reason why one Salisbury company is closing, company officials confirmed Monday.

Standard Register, a printing company, located at 600 Marvel Road in Salisbury, will be closing its doors this summer.

The company currently employs 76 people, who will lose their jobs.

"It's disappointing because it seems as if we've done nothing wrong," said David Ryan with the Salisbury-Wicomico Development office. "The workers there and the management team locally have done nothing wrong, it's just the market forces are changing."

Officials from the company's corporate office said, "Decisions like these are never easy because they affect long-serving and hard-working people, their families and the community."'

There is no word yet on the future of the property.
