From Associated Press:
Lifetouch Inc. says it plans to end its yearbook publishing operation in Kansas City, effective Dec. 1.
Company spokesman Kelvin Miller says the plant shutdown will cost 75 full-time employees their jobs and eliminate about 300 seasonal jobs. The company, based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, will consolidate its yearbook publishing at a plant in Loves Park, Illinois.
The Kansas City Star reports the changes were prompted by trends toward digital and self-publishing.
Miller says about 25 jobs in sales and marketing will continue in Kansas City for the foreseeable future.
