COLUMBUS, Ohio  — The basket-shaped Ohio building that was headquarters for the Longaberger Co. will be emptied as the basket maker moves remaining staff to a manufacturing plant.

The office in Newark was known as the “Big Basket.”

CEO John Rochon Jr. told employees in a company email that he always thought it would be smart to have employees in one place but wanted to assess how important the “Big Basket” was to the sales team.

It’s not clear what will happen to the distinctive building. The Licking County auditor says foreclosure on the property is possible if the delinquent taxes aren’t paid.

Employees are moving to the company’s plant in Frazeysburg.
