One year ago, Hackleburg lost its largest employer along with several workers. A massive tornado hit the Wrangler plant, and for months, people didn’t know if the company would rebuild.
However, Wrangler did decide to rebuild. The land has been cleared, and on Thursday, company leaders came to Hackleburg to join local and state dignitaries to break ground on the new distribution center.
WHNT News 19′s Beth Jett was there and will have reports Thursday at 5:00 and 6:00 p.m.
