CORINTH – Pepsico will be closing its Corinth beverages warehouse located on U.S. Highway 45 in February, moving those operations to its Tupelo location.

Of the 31 employees affected by the closure, the majority will be given the opportunity to transfer to Tupelo, said Vincent Bozek, Pepsico North America spokesman.

“This difficult decision was not made lightly, and we’re committed to supporting the remaining people who were affected by this action by offering outplacement services,” he said.

The closure is expected the end of February.
