FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) - The news shocked a whole community.

Hillshire Brands will be shutting down by December 30. The decision was based off a comprehensive business evaluation, and will leave 11 hundred employees without a job. But before the layoffs start, the company will hold a job fair for employees.

The goal is to make the transition easier for employees once the plant closes.

Hillshire Brands reached out to the Shoals Chamber of Commerce and the Shoals Economic Development Association to ensure employers are well represented.

Shoals leaders believe the shutdown can help create opportunities for employees and the Shoals.

The job fair is only open to Hillshire employees.

It will be happening at the Florence/Lauderdale Coliseum on May 20 and 21.
