Wellstone Mills Textile Plant Closing

Another Eufaula textile plant is closing, leaving more than 100 workers without a job.

Wellstone Mills closed its Lakeside Plant I in August and laid off 125-employees.

Tuesday, a company news release announced the closing of Lakeside Plant II.

About 120-workers will be laid off as a result.

The plant makes cotton and blended yarn for apparel.

Officials at company headquarters in Greenville, South Carolina, blame the shutdown on an increase in fabric imports and a reduction in domestic demand.
