Longaberger Company goes out of business

Longaberger Company, famous for its handmade baskets, has gone out of business after years of decline.

The company sent a note to its sales consultants Friday 5/4/2018 saying “Longaberger, at this time, has ceased operations,” according to The Columbus Dispatch.

The note told sales consultants to “please take action as soon as possible” in contacting credit-card companies and also advised against attempting to place any further orders.

The Dispatch reported that Longaberger has been hit with hard economic times and changing consumer tastes, falling into a slow decline for years from its peak when it had $1 billion in sales and nearly 8,000 employees.

A little under two years ago Longaberger left its famous basket-shaped headquarters building in Newark, east of Columbus, and late last year had moved 25 miles further east in Dresden.

The New York Stock Exchange suspended trading on the shares of Longaberger parent JRJR Networks, based in Dallas, less than a month ago.
