No more going Solo

I always choose Solo cups over Dixie cups or other brands because for as long as I can remember, there has been a Solo plant in Leominster. Living in town, I remember driving past the plant nearly every day.

No more.
LEOMINSTER-- Solo Cup Co. is closing its facility on Florence Street at the end of the year, affecting almost 200 local employees.

The Illinois-based company announced the closure of its local plant and a facility in Wheeling, Ill., last week. The local plant closure is expected by Dec. 31. The Illinois plant will be closed by the end of February, according to the company.

Solo will be shifting production and employment to a manufacturing plant in North Andover and some of the local jobs may be moved there, according to a news release.
I guess it doesn't matter which brand I use now, since there is no local industry to support.
