Housing Woes to Close Area Businesses 

Workers at Northeastern’s sister company, Old Town Lumber, are also feeling the pinch.

Owner Jonathan French says the manufacturing part of northeastern will shut down starting on Christmas eve. Production will hopefully start up again in mid-February.

Across the road at Old Town Lumber, meanwhile, about a dozen workers will also be without a job for awhile, when the planer mill shuts down for three weeks.
