Cape Girardeau company closes after more than 70 years of business

By Heartland News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - General Sign is now out of business, according to many employees. It apparently closed last week, and several employees say it was quite a shock.

They say the company closed its doors because of economic problems.

General Signs' primary manufacturing facility is located on Nash Road in Cape Girardeau. There, they made and manufactured outdoor signs.

General sign was founded in 1939. According to the employees Heartland News spoke with, many have personal belongings at the building; they'll be able to get those later in the week.

Heartland News hasn't been able to get in touch with supervisors or anyone from the company for comment.
