Simmons Distribution Plant is closing down and taking dozens of jobs with it.

They've slowly cut jobs over the years, and now the company says it is consolidating and moving to Southern California.

Don Sims, the President of the Chamber of Commerce, said, "We're appreciative of that fact they've been in our community. But all businesses are born, they mature, and they die, so it's a constant struggle to look for replacement."

No one at the company would go on camera, but we are told some employees will still have their jobs until February.
