On October 15, 2019, Kitchen Collection LLC submitted a WARN notice with the Ohio Office of Workforce Development. The letter explains that the company intends to cease operations and close two Chillicothe, Ohio facilities. The first facility is located at 71 East Water Street. The second’s address is 351 Chamber Drive. Both facilities are located in the city of Chillicothe.
The facilities are expected to close on December 31, 2019. The Kitchen Collection anticipates that the closure will be permanent and will impact the entire facilities. The action will result in the separation of the employees who work at the facilities. The first separation is expected to take place on December 1, 2019 and all employees will be laid off by December 31, 2019.
Depending on business needs, some employees may continue working for a short period following the closure. The workers are not represented by a union so bumping rights do not exist. It is estimated that roughly 69 workers will be laid off. The full WARN notice can be found here.
