Hooker Furniture has owned the
plant located in Southeast Roanoke
since 1981.

Currently, it makes executive
office furniture and home theater
cabinets.

The reason for the plant's
closure is simple: a declining demand
for its wood furniture made in the U.S.

About 275 employees will lose
their jobs, that represents about
20-percent of the company's total
workforce.

Employees were notified about the
closure yesterday around three o'clock.

The plant will remain open until
mid-August.

Company officials say each
employee will receive some sort of
severance package.
