Justin Boots announces closures in Cassville, Carthage
Justin Boots announces closures to two of its factories in southwest Missouri. The company released the following to social media on July 6, 2020:
Our Justin Family had to make a difficult announcement this morning that is best captured in the statement below.
“The closure of the Justin and Chippewa factories in Cassville and Carthage, Missouri, was a difficult decision brought about by unprecedented times. Unfortunately, the economic reality has forced us to make hard decisions that are necessary to sustain the legacy of our brands long into the future. We recognize the skill that has gone into the footwear produced in Missouri over the years, which is why we have asked our Missouri workers to consider the possibility of relocating to one of our other factories. Making high quality boots is an art, and we value their skills, loyalty, and dedication.”
