The Jennie-O Turkey Store plant on Benson Avenue Southwest is set to close this spring, a decision made by Hormel Foods, which owns Jennie-O. No layoffs are planned as workers will transition over to the Willmar Avenue location.
Look for the Jennie-O Turkey Store float in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, airing 9 a.m. to noon on NBC. This is the second year the Willmar-based turkey producer will be represented in the annual parade.
About 265 employees across departments within Nova-Tech Engineering were eligible for the bonus, which was distributed as gift cards to a local grocery store, according to a news release from the business.
