Beat the Bookstore Franchise Inc., based in Salt Lake City, said Thursday it will close its only corporate store, at 4523 S. Redwood Road, at the end of business today in order to focus solely on supporting its franchises across the country.

The college textbook company said customers with in-store credit balances may call 801-886-0552 or e-mail

Other Beat the Bookstore locations are unaffected.
