MCCRORY, Ark. -- American Greetings Corporation says it will close its greeting card plant at McCrory, a cost-cutting move that will put 310 people out of work.

The Cleveland-based company announced today that doors to the plant will be closed by August. Work from the plant will be shifted to American Greetings' plants at Osceola and at Danville, Kentucky.

The McCrory plant has a 770,000-square-foot building that has been used as a distribution facility for Carlton Cards. The company said the work of seasonal order-filling will move to a 2.6 million-square foot facility in Osceola.

Everyday order filling will move to a recently renovated facility in Danville. The Osceola plant is the largest employer in Mississippi County, with 1,600 employees.
