NEOSHO, Mo. — A major Neosho employer is officially shut down in response to the covid-19 pandemic.
La-Z-Boy furloughed nearly 800 workers in its Neosho Plant – part of a temporary shutdown affecting 6,800 employees worldwide.
That includes all manufacturing facilities.
130 of 155 La-Z-Boy stores are also closed in a move that will eventually shutter all of those retail outlets.
The furlough is unpaid.
And while company leaders expect to reopen at a later date, they do not have a timetable for that decision.
