EVERGREEN, Ala. (AP) - A South Carolina-based clothing company has announced it will close its distribution center in Evergreen.
The move will idle 77 workers who were informed about the closure on Friday.
Gerber Childrenwear LLC said it would transfer operations to a contractor near Charleston, S.C.
A company executive blamed rising freight costs for the decision to shutter the Evergreen facility. It opened in 1977.
The center will cease operations in June.
