SPG Augusta set to shut down

AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) - 55 people will lose their jobs after an Augusta mill announced it's closing. 

On Monday, Georgia-Pacific announced it will permanently close its Augusta tissue mill on Cookie Road.

Officials say the decision was driven by several things including increased competition in the tissue business.

Employees will continue to be paid through June 29th.

There's a chance they could be relocated to other GP facilities in the area and region.
