MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO (KTVI) – Coca Cola intends to shut down its Maryland Heights bottling facility by March 28 2014. The plant currently employs 102 people and all will be displaced by this move.

City officials tell FOX 2 News that Coca Cola told the city it was consolidating its operations in the area and that necessitated the Maryland Heights move. The plant is located at 78 Progress Parkway in Maryland Heights.

Fox 2 has left messages for Coca Cola officials but has not received any comment from the company. It remains unclear if the 102 employees will be absorbed into other plants in the area or will be out of work.

    I am Mrs Melisa Donaldson from South Africa, i want to share a testimony of my life to every one. i was married to my husband Lucas Donaldson, i love him so much we have been married for 5 years now with two kids. when he went for a vacation to France he meant a lady called Rose, he told me that he is no longer interested in the marriage any more. i was so confuse and seeking for help, i don’t know what to do until I met my friend Miss Angela and told her about my problem. she told me not to worry about it that she had a similar problem before and introduce me to a man called Dr. Asemota Olokunorbo, who cast a spell on her ex and bring him back to her after 1 day. Miss Angela ask me to contact Dr. Asemota Olokunorbo. I contacted him to help me bring back my husband and he ask me not to worry about it that the gods of his fore-fathers will fight for me. He told me by two days he will re-unite me and my husband together. After two days my husband called and told me he is coming back to sought out things with me, I was surprise when I saw him and he started crying for forgiveness. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth for what this great spell caster did for me and my husband, you can contact Dr. Asemota Olokunorbo on any problem in this world, he is very nice man, here is his contact;on the internet so far his email:
