Gulistan Carpet in Aberdeen has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in federal court, the company said in a news release this week.
Gulistan employees learned in a letter sent Dec. 28 that the company was "in the process of permanently winding down operations" at its facilities on N.C. 5 in Aberdeen and on Airbase Road in Wagram "beginning immediately and continuing over the course of the approximately the next four months."
Gulistan Carpet is closing its operations in Aberdeen and Wagram, eliminating nearly 400 jobs, according to a letter the company has sent to employees. A majority of the jobs lost will come from the larger Aberdeen facility.
