A greeting card company has laid off more than 50 employees as it ends its manufacturing operations in Bloomington.
Sunrise Greeting will continue to employ about 135 employees in Bloomington, focusing on product development, sales and distribution.
The company has been a division of Kansas City, Mo.-based Hallmark Cards Inc. since 1998. Company vice president Amy Slaughter says Hallmark is consolidating its manufacturing process.
The layoffs were announced last June.
Sunrise Greetings was founded in Bloomington in 1974. At its peak in the late 1990s, it employed about 700 people.
