But Vice President for Human Relations Jim Boutilier (boo-teh-LEER) confirmed the distribution center will shut down January 31st.
The workers got severance packages this morning.
It's the first part of what could be a major restructuring.
Moore's operates 50-lumber stores across the country...three in the Roanoke area.
Moore's new owner runs lumber yards across the Southwest United States.
Its president and C-E-O Jim Cavanaugh tells News-7 there "definitely will be a reorganization" at Moore's, meaning some stores will close.
We DO NOT know if that includes stores in the Roanoke area. ))

Topping tonight's Health CHeck Report...It's that time of year when we think of colds and flu-- another infection can hit infants and children.

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control says 90-thousand people mostly infants under six months old, are hospitalized with RSV and 45-hundred die each year.
(----------------)

The symptoms are very similar to colds, including a runny nose, cough and sore throat.
But they can also be more serious: causing rapid breathing, wheezing and even respiratory distress.
Doctors say parents who have infants or school-aged children need to be on the alert for these signs and should try to keep kids with these symptoms away from babies under one year old.
The other thing that parents can do: Kick the habit-- the study found babies whose parents smoke, are at a much greater risk for RSV.
