New Era Layoffs Start in April

Layoffs are set to start within the next month at a west Alabama plant.

Starting the second week in April, layoffs will begin at New Era Cap Company.

This is part of a consolidation plan that will leave more than 300 workers there without a job.

New Era is combining its operation in Demopolis with another plant in New York.

However, as that plant closes, a new store is opening in Demopolis. Mississippi-based Vowell's Fresh Market is the chain's first venture into Alabama.
