Mailing Business Closes


HAYS, Kan. (AP) – A mailing business that closed its doors after losing work from a major New Hampshire customer has told its 45 employees that it won’t reopen.

Larry Tucker, owner of Hays International Mailing, said his business got little warning that the steady work Nashua, N.H.-based Brickmill Co. had provided would cease after the marketing firm lost two of its biggest clients.

Tucker said the mailing company didn’t have enough time to brace itself financially. He said the business had to stop payments to banks and others and had fallen behind on taxes.

Employees were temporarily laid off in early May. Tucker announced this week the layoff was permanent.
