Earth Fare Warehouse Layoffs

At least two dozen people will lose their job at a warehouse in Fletcher.

The Asheville based supermarket Earth Fare is closing it's distribution center, but the main headquarters will remain open. The center is located in the Fletcher Industrial Park off Cane Creek road. The building used to be part of the Steelcase Office Furniture Plant, which shut down back in 2004.

Earth Fare says the warehouse closure is due to rapid growth into new markers across the Southeast and Midwest. They chain now runs 31 stores in nine states. They say they've outgrown the Fletcher location, and will now use a third party distribution provider.

A representative from Earthfare says the 25 warehouse team members have been given generous severance packages, extended benefits and job placement assistance for the transition, which will happen October 12th.
