EUGENE, Ore.-- 25 industries are dying nationwide. That's according to a newly published study done by 24-7 Wall Street.
According to the study, the fastest dying industries have lost up to 90% of employees over the past 10 years.
One of the biggest declines is being seen in libraries and archives.
Bookstores are also among the businesses struggling. KEZI spoke to the owner of Fine Books in Eugene. Jeremy Nissel said he thinks the bookselling industry is making a comeback.
"Things are on the upswing now. I think there's a return to the physical book away from the electronic format. I'm seeing younger people shopping for books again. And that's always a healthy sign for book selling,” Nissel said.
Some of the other industries on the decline are video rentals, apparel knitting mills, and photo finishing.
