Clare Rose, the exclusive distributor of Anheuser-Busch InBev products for Long Island, plans to shutter its Melville distribution facility in March, according to Newsday. The privately owned company, which recently laid off 14 employees, nearly two years after resolving a strike with delivery drivers and warehouse workers, plans to consolidate its operations at its headquarters in the Rose Executive Park in East Yaphank. Clare Rose opened its Melville facility at 255 Pinelawn Road in 1995. The 125,000-square-foot facility has about a dozen loading docks. Clare Rose plans to lease the Melville building to another tenant. [Newsday]
