Movie Gallery's decision to move jobs outside of the Wiregrass will not be as devastating as originally feared.
According to a representative at the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce, the company is simply re-positioning.
It’s all part of their operation to align and enhance their functions after the multi-million dollar buy-out of Hollywood Video.
While some jobs will be transferred to the West Coast, almost the same number of jobs will be transferred into the Wiregrass as the company decides which jobs fit best in each region.
Movie Gallery and the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce look at this move as an even trade.
