More layoffs at Creative Memories scrapbooking company in St Cloud

The scrapbooking company Creative Memories has laid off another 35 workers at its headquarters in St. Cloud.

The St. Cloud Times reports the job losses were effective last week, affecting workers in the manufacturing, distribution and operations part of the business. The company laid off 72 employees in April. A spokewoman told the newpaper that the employee count was now likely below 120 because of the latest layoff and what she termed “attrition.”

Earlier this year, Twin Cities Business reported that that Creative Memories and its parent company, The Antioch Company, LLC, which manufactures, packages, and markets commercial and recreational paper products, both filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in April.

The Times story says that the company's plan to emerge from bankruptcy will be the subject of a Thursday court hearing in St. Paul. The company's plans include a new name — Ahni & Zoe by Creative Memories — and products that would be available to customers late this month if the proposed moves are approved by U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Katherine A. Constantine.
Before the bankruptcy proceedings began, Creative Memories had 230 employees working at its headquarters in St. Cloud.
