January 9, 1992 — A planned expansion in the washing operations at Wrangler on Blue Bell Avenue in Luray is a step closer to reality and could mean more jobs later this year.
Last Monday, the Luray Town Council voted unanimously for a special use permit recommended by the town’s planning commission which will allow the construction of a new building for the manufacturing plant’s finishing department.
Wrangler Luray Division Personnel Director Randy Stokes said the expanded laundry operations would employ up to 100 people down the line.
“That’s a ballpark figure, from the date we start construction,” he said.
Stokes said the next step for Wrangler once it gets final approval from the main corporate office would be putting the project out for bids.
