Agriculture Company Buys Former Greeting Card Plant in Woodruff County

DECEMBER 10, 2004 - Posted 2:58 p.m. CST

 

McCRORY, AR - The building that once housed the American Greetings card plant at McCrory has been sold to an agricultural company.

The plant closed last year, eliminating 300 jobs.  Work was moved from McCrory to other American Greetings plants, including one in Osceola that is still operating.  In August, officials announced the plant would go up for auction.

The buyer is Lawhon Seed, which plans to use the property as an investment.  For a time, the building will be used as storage.
