Whirlpool to close Fort Smith plant June 29

The City Wire reports the official closing date of Whirlpool's plant in Fort Smith will be June 29. The plant, which once employed more than 4,000, has seen the workforce decline dramatically, in part becaue of movement of production to Mexico. The closure will mean a loss of 917 jobs, City Wire said.
